Thurles Link Road Open

MapThe first 7km section of the Nenagh-Limerick M7 motorway, known as the Nenagh Bypass, which includes a new link to the Thurles Interchange, is now officially open

The section comprises part of Nenagh’s existing N7 bypass, which has been upgraded to motorway standard, and includes an interchange with the R498 Thurles road.

Full motorway restrictions apply with temporary traffic management and speed restrictions remaining in place on both the Eastern and Western ends of this section of  the Motorway.
The interchange will now enable traffic to join or exit the motorway at Knockalton instead of having to come through Nenagh town.

The section is opening ahead of the main 38km Nenagh-Limerick motorway, which is not expected to carry traffic until March or April 2010.

Project contractor Bóthar Hibernian is advising motorists to exercise “extreme caution” while temporary traffic management is being removed from this route.
