Its actually not supposed to be completed until September 2007 although it could easily finish up a few months earlier. Its almost a year now since the project started and things seem to be motoring on fairly well, all elements of the scheme are underway! At the Rossbrien interchange the embankments are at a fairly advanced stage and works on the overbridge are picking up pace. Piling works have started on the St Nessans road & rail bridge and further north the Ballykeefe bridge is due to open later this month, the beams for this bridge are the longest ever used in Ireland.
The Bunlicky lake causeway is apparently well ahead of schedule, at the moment its reached the level of 1 metre above the water, the final height is 2 metres above the water. As for the tunnel itself, the construction of the 5 elements has been going on since last August and the casting of the 1st section is underway now I think!
