N11 - Coppermine - 19922.JPG
N11

An S2 section of the N11 just north of Arklow Dublin-bound. This is where the present dual carriageway ends, and is due to be bypassed in a few years time to join the newer dualled section of N11 at Rathnew. On the left is a little mound that looks like it is to be used by the Gardai for speedchecks. August 08.

N11 Arklow bypass

The ADS for the Arklow bypass's only intermediate junction, seen heading south. The Arklow bypass opened on 29.01.1999, relieving a major bottleneck on the N11/E01 route between Dublin and Rosslare Europort.

Heading south, the only intermediate junction is the exit for Arklow. The slip road for this exit diverges here.

R759 Near Sally Gap Southbound

Incorrect signage approaching narrow bridge. The S bend is to right then left! It's not a place you'd want to run off the road either. You'd need a tractor to pull your car back out! Originally uploaded to Coppermine on Apr 19, 2006 by murphaph



I think it's actually n/bound - C2r April 2016

You curve back around on youself as you follow the road around over the bridge and head towards the N81 and on to Dublin.

Originally built by the british, this is a military road from Dublin through the Wicklow mountains, built to allow troops to quash any rebelious activity about 1800. You can see the road is cut into the side of the valley and has retaining walls beneath it.

Wicklow, evidently, use dark grey alustars, although a few lighter coloured ones can be found.

Wicklow's new AluStars, at least around Bray, come with dark grey borders instead of white as in Dublin City. There are 2 aspect pedestrian lights in Bray town centre that before the red man returns they 'blackout' for a few seconds which is pretty much the same as in the UK.
