The R262 in County Donegal connects the N56 at Kilrean to the same road at Drumbeagh by a route which is almost half the length of that followed by the national road between the same points. The N56 is currently undergoing upgrade works up to the R262 junctions at each end, but no further (at the moment). Some small sections of the R262 have been realigned in recent years but the road is significantly below the standard of the new N56 sections.
