The Fairview Spur was a short motorway planned in Dublin. It would have left the Royal Canal Motorway at a fork interchange in Spencer Dock, and then headed north-east along the waterfront (remembering much of this land had not been reclaimed yet).

It would have terminated at Marino Crescent. No detailed plans for this junction have been found, but a signalised crossroads seems likely. One very early plan did propose an exit at East Wall Road, but this was quickly dropped.

The road was included in the council's plan throughout the 1970s, but funding was never provided. Alfie Byrne Road now follows a similar course. In 1992 the Liffey Crossing, which the Fairview Spur would have fed into, was formally cancelled - without that there was no chance of a Fairview Spur.

Given the lack of short motorways in Ireland, there is no precedent to suggest whether the Fairview Spur would have had its own number or not.
