M11 J4 and M50 J17 is the fork interchange where the two routes merge near Shankill. The M11 is the older route into Dublin city centre while the M50 acts as the city's bypass, meeting other important routes on its way round.
In practice, the M11 from here is a very slow route to the city centre, and more useful for accessing the southside suburbs. As a result, the M50 takes priority through the junction, despite the M11 being the through-route.
The M11 here was opened in 1991. It was adjusted to cater for the M50, which opened in June 2005. Even though the M11 ends immediately north of here, it is still considered to be a through-route at this junction.
