Route

The A1 is part of the historic postal route from Belfast to Dublin, although the northern section is now shadowed by the A12 Westlink and M1.

A1 Lisburn Road heading out of Belfast

It starts outside Belfast City Hall and heads southwest through suburbia as far as Lisburn before diverging from the M1's route at junction 7, heading south towards Banbridge and Newry. Between Sprucefield and Newry, the road is a dual carriageway with hard shoulders throughout most of the length, but with property accesses, bus stops, and at grade junctions, including roundabouts at Hillsborough and Sprucefield. For the majority of this section, National Speed Limit applies, although there are some short sections subject to a 60 m.p.h. limit.


The Newy bypass was the last remaining section of single carriageway between Belfast and Dublin, but was completed to dual carriageway in mid 2010. This section has been completed to 'motorway' standard, with full grade separation and restrictions on property access/frontage.


A1 north of Newry

After the Newry Bypass, the A1 crosses the border and becomes the N1, leading to the Republic's M1 towards Dublin. However, the border does funny things in this area and the next junction south straddles the border, with a short section of the northbound N1 actually in Northern Ireland.
