The R810 includes a stretch of the former T5, the approach to Dublin from the south and south-west of Ireland. This includes the section of dual carriageway at Bluebell, one of first D2 sections in Ireland, built to bypass a narrow bending section of the original route (now Old Naas Road). Constructed between September 1941 and January 1944, this exercise in new road building wasn't entirely successful: the road had to be resurfaced in the late 1950s as the surface was breaking up. This was attributed to the use of poor quality aggregates owing to transport difficulties at the time.
