N8/E201 RCS

Sorry for the blur, but it really does have both N8 and E-201 on there. Similar style to the Gorey bypass N11/E-01 signage.

N8 Glanmire Bypass

This was taken from an overbridge (which was extremely difficult to get to!) and shows the Glanmire Bypass looking north. Although it's not apparent in the photo, the descent is quite steep, making the bend slightly sharp at higher speeds. The Glanmire Bypass is a motorway redesignation candidate.

M8 toll booths and speed limit

Approaching the toll booths, southbound. Note the unusual speed limit sign with a grey border. These are visible at the booths for the intermediate junction, too.

Welcome to the M8 - Coppermine - 8309.JPG
Welcome to the M8

I don't like the route confirmation sign -- what's the bets that countless UK road atlases will call this stretch the 'M8 (toll)'? I think they would have been better to use a standard motorway route confirmation sign, and place 'Toll' on a separate plate below.

The main engineering feature of the Fermoy bypass is the 450-metre span of the Blackwater viaduct. Here it is, heading southbound.

The N8 Watergrasshil bypass (HQ D2AP) runs end-on into the M8 about a km further south.
