The N28 is a short but important route southeast of Cork city. Its main purpose is to serve the ferry terminal at Ringaskiddy and the commuter town of Carrigaline.

Route

The N28 starts at the Cork South Ring Road at a trumpet interchange. It quickly arrives at a grade separated junction with the R610. This is also the end of the short dual carriageway for this route. The rest is single carriageway with a couple of overtaking lanes as required. We are now bypassing the Cork suburb of Douglas. We soon reach a roundabout for the R611. This is where a large amount of traffic leaves to go into Carrigaline. The N28 continues eastward towards Ringaskiddy. There are a large number of multinational pharmaceutical companies around here, plus ending at the ferry terminal, where ferries depart for Roscoff and Santander.

Future

As the N28 is the key route to the Ringaskiddy ferry there are plans to convert the route to motorway standard. Consultation is taking place in 2016 so it is still several years away before any construction could start. M28 Cork to Ringaskiddy project website
