N7 J6 n-b - Coppermine - 7785.jpg
N7 J6 n-b

View from the overbridge at junction 6 on the newly upgraded N7. This was taken with the sun behind me on a beautiful day. There wasn't a cloud in the sky! This is looking northbound towards Dublin. This was the first rural dual cariageway in the Republic of Ireland, built in the 60s/70s and by the time of the upgrade, it really showed! This section is in county Kildare with the county Dublin border neing just at the crest of the hill. The two county councils used to test road markings and pavements there.

N7 south of Rathcoole

This is part of the original 1970s-era Naas dual carriageway, the oldest stretch of rural dual carriageway in the Republic. This is currently being upgraded to D3AP and four interchanges are being built to remove any crossing movements on the road. The improved road is expected to be open in September 2006, and will mean there's 21 km of D3 between Newlands Cross and Naas, the longest such stretch in the country.

This signs the junction with the N19 Shannon airport access route in Co Clare. This is probably the most westerly gantry sign in the country.

A rare thing to behold in Ireland, an overhead gantry! They won't be as rare when the M50 is widened though.

Dodgy gantries have become the norm on our roads unfortunately. The NRA appears to have accepted the error of their ways but it was too late for this scheme. Note the Garda (police) only sign is in motorway blue, though we are not on a motorway. There's a 'motorway ahead' sign hiding behind that route confirmatory sign too!

N7 J4 s/b

The LILO accesses are not numbered on the widened scheme, only full access junctions receive a number which makes some sense to me. This is just north of Rathcoole Village, which is to the left of the bypassing road. The overbridge here was not built as part of the latest widenning but the road underneath was D2 up until this scheme made it D3.
