ABOUT THIS SITE
This site is a personal project only. It does not represent government or industry, and I have tried to make it as impartial as possible.
It came about because I was not satisfied that information on Ireland's developing road network was centralised enough, and I wanted more control
over content, which wasn't possible with Wiki.
I can be contacted at j_p_dowling.at.yahoo.dot.com. Remember to remove the dots!

- Northern Ireland Roads Site.
Information on schemes happening in Northern Ireland. Many of these cross the border into the Republic and are therefore of national importance.
Editable encyclopedia has a good page on roads in Ireland as well as well-maintained individual pages (examples 1
forum under Infrastructure, although not an offical information source, is a good source of opening dates and other live information.
In addition, the following excellent British road sites provided much inspiration.
