The M8 M-F scheme at junction 12 looking south

13 February 2009. CBM being laid. This is laid, rolled, and then water-proofed with a black coating. The CBM hardens quickly. Three layers of asphalt are then applied.

The M8 under construction at junction 13, south of Mitchelstown.

This shows the section under construction in December 2008. The overbridge is carrying the single carriageway N8. When the motorway beneath opens, the road above will be reclassified the R639.

M8 Cashel - Mitchelstown

This section was originally opened as the N8, and was subsequently reclassified as M8 in September 2008. The road had a solid hard shoulder from its opening earlier in the year, so only the signage had to be changed.

N8 ADS for Michelstown relief road - Coppermine - 10387.jpg
N8 ADS for Michelstown relief road

This rather strange ADS shows the Michelstown relief road as it arcs to the west of the town. Slightly confusing, IMHO, as it looks like a deformed reverse roundabout!

N8 Michelstown relief road - Coppermine - 10386.jpg
N8 Michelstown relief road

This single-carriageway western bypass of Michelstown opened in July 2006. Its life as the N8 will be relatively short-lived, as the N8 HQDC scheme from north of Fermoy to North of Michelstown will pass to the west of the town. This missing link is the only part of the N8 dualling not completed or under construction as of Feb 2007, which probably means it'll be the last to be finished, hence the temporary relief road. viamichelin.com incorrectly show this as HQDC under construction.
