Good to see it motoring along anyway! Most of the work in the last month or 6 weeks has been centred on the tunnel itself, although in the last few days there has been a noticeable increase in the numbers of workers on the site of the Nessans road overbridge outside the crescent shopping centre.
Of course its just a pity the project is being tolled, after all its not as if we dont pay enough already for the “privilege” of using the roads in this country!:rolleyes: However the tolling of a city bypass is such an incredibly Irish thing to do and we are probably going to see plenty of trucks continuing to trundle through the city centre just to avoid the toll. It may also be some time before we see barrier free tolling on the south ring as embankment works on the mainline toll plaza and the Clonmacken toll plaza are basically complete. It looks like it will be dual 4 lane carriageway through the toll plaza’s.
BTW, the Dept of Transport have confirmed that the new Limerick to Nenagh road will open next year as a motorway and its highly likely the entire 20km stretch of the Limerick Southern Ring will also be classified as a motorway when fully complete.
