Dublin’s M50 upgrade nears an end

Dublin's M50 commuters can at last heave a sigh of relief — the four-year €1bn upgrade of the M50 is almost complete.

Three lanes of motorway will be opened today from Sandyford to the junction of the M1/Dublin Airport, which will allow motorists to cruise at 100kmh along 22km of high-specification road.

“We are pleased with the progress of work along the M50 mainline,” National Roads Authority chief executive Fred Barry said. “There are still upgrade works to be completed at some of the junctions, but this is a major step in the right direction. The M50 remains on schedule for full completion by the end of 2010.”
