Five Roads is a dumbbell type interchange on the R132.


The junction in 1965

The junction was originally a staggered crossroads on a minor road. A single carriageway realignment of the N1 was put through the junction as part of a realignment scheme (50s?) which created five-armed crossroads at this location.

The crossroads which was upgraded to a grade-separated dumbbell as part of the M1/N1 Balbriggan Bypass Scheme, at the southern temporary terminus of the dual carriageway section in the mid-2000s.

When the M1 was extended southwards, the junction was bypassed, leaving an isolated stretch of dual carriageway on the R132.
