N11 Southbound entering Camolin - Coppermine - 5539.JPG
N11 Southbound entering Camolin

Co. Wexford. Note standard irish start of urban area signage with village name, 50 speed limt and traffic calming. The colour of the village/town nameplate should reflect the road status, in this case a primary route so it's green. Note the contractor has marked the village streets incorrectly and it looks british with that continuous white line at the edges of the carriageway!

N11 northbound leaving Camolin

End of urban area, speed limit returns to 100km/h and Wexford CC wishes you safe home in irish. Note the incorrect edge of carrigeway markings makes this whole village look british at first glance. They should of course be dashed yellow lines!

Ireland: N11 SB @ Glen of the Downs

Narrow hard shoulder due to reduced land take; the road goes through a nature reserve. The 40 mph limit is due to road works. Normal dual carriageway speed limit in Ireland is 60 mph (100 km/h from Sept 2004).

A new motorway lever gantry sign at junction 22 on the N11, heading towards Dublin. This sign previously gave Inch as the only destination. Gorey (North) has since been sensibly added. Apologies for the poor quality of the image. Early-August, 2009.

An arched sign for exit 22 on the N11. These signs are appearing more and more on Irish dual carriageways and motorways. Only Inch is signed here, but the old N11 (the R 772), serves Gorey too. August 08.

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 south of Glen of the Downs

This section of the N11 has been dual carriageway since at least the 1980s. It has recently had its median crossings closed, and a developer has funded this grade-separated junction to access recently-developed lands south of Greystones. Note the junction number.

N11 Newtownmountkennedy bypass - Coppermine - 9192.jpg
N11 Newtownmountkennedy bypass

Newtownmountkennedy boasts the longest village name in Ireland (at least in English, anyway). It was long a traffic blackspot in summer, but relief came in 1991 with the opening of a HQ dual carriageway bypass. This sign was added in 2006 and shows the new exit numbering coming into force across the radial routes from Dublin.

Rathnew bypass - Coppermine - 9191.jpg
N11 Ashford/Rathnew bypass

The N11 Ashford/Rathnew bypass opened in September 2004, and extended the dual carriageway south from its former terminus at the end of the Newtownmountkennedy bypass. The scheme consisted of 14 km of High Quality 2x2 lane dual carriageway, and carries heavy summer traffic as Dublin residents head for the beaches of Wicklow.

N11 between Wicklow and Arklow

There is currently a 14 km gap in the dual carriageway between the end of the Rathnew bypass and the start of the Arklow bypass. Plans are well advanced for construction, and the CPOs have been served, but unfortunately there has been no word yet as to funding. Expected (hoped) construction start is sometime in 2007.

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.

This is also the last dual carriageway section currently open on the N11 as you head south. The N11 Arklow/Gorey link construction site is visible to the left. This 23 km scheme will extend the dual carriageway past Gorey to south of Clogh. Map available at http://www.nra.ie/RoadSchemeActivity/SchemeMaps/file,1869,en.pdf

Sign with no Irish - Coppermine - 11543.jpg
Sign with no Irish

An opposite example from Wexford with no Irish transalations. Also odd about this sign is the use of the international railway station logo. Railway stations do not often appear on official signage, with Iarnrod Éireann-Irish Rail usually erecting its own signs (variously using TSM-style or IÉ corporate style depending on their mood at the time!). In Bray there is a an official TSM sign with the IÉ logo on it, but thats a rarity.
