At Ravensdale. Looks like the old road will be subsumed here, hence the A1/N1 link will not be motorway.

This is north of Jonesborough, so in Northern Ireland. Note the culverting.

A1 signed south of the border

This shows the approach to Ballymascanlon roundabout on the N52, which is receiving a lot of attention as construction of the M1 Dundalk Western Bypass progresses. This will be the temporary end of the improved road, as the N1 A1 Dundalk - Newry link only started construction this year. Note the A1 is signed, even though this is south of the border.

Old end of ROI M1.JPG
This is at the northern end of Dundalk, where the motorway current ends. Note the patching on the M1 part still shows! I assume that the northern section continues as a motorway at least for some stage - so this roundabout will have M1 to belfast and M1 to dublin!. I wonder if it would be appropriate for those designing the sign to have M1 (A1) Belfast. Originally uploaded to Coppermine on Apr 12, 2007 by michaelsa
N1 First Distance Sign - Coppermine - 23095.JPG
N1 First Distance Sign

This is the first sign on the N1 which provides distances to towns. It is also one of the few remaining on the N1 south of the airport. However, are these distances still valid, given the motorway sections through Drogheda and Dundalk?

Note the no cyclists

From the customs area off the N1. No cyclists allowed back on. Cycle path is noted, which is a track alongside Ravensdale (where the old N1 was). Cyclists re-routed...

The white signs on the left of the carriageway mark the entrance to a slip road giving access to the military compound/inspection point that was on the SB side of the old road. The signs say 'Official vehicles only' in Irish (only).

Heading south just after crossing the border. Note the 70 km/h speed limit on the sliproad. While certainly more welcome than the usual 60 km/h, I don't think it's quite legal!

Southbound. Now this is odd. It's 1km to the start of the motorway, but only 300m to the last exit for non-motorway traffic.

Southbound. Here's where we lose the non-motorway traffic. So the motorway starts at this point. Where are the chopsticks?

Southbound. It's magic! A motorway starting casually a few hundred metres beyond the last exit for non-motorway traffic. Good to see Louth County Council living up to their usual high standards of signposting.
