Dublin

The junction of Sir John Rogerson's Quay and Cardiff Lane.

The R813 is a very short section of road in inner city Dublin. One way restrictions mean it is impossible to drive in one go.

It runs along City Quay, where it serves as the Inner Orbital, but this road is eastbound only. It then becomes Sir John Rogerson's Quay, but since the Samuel Beckett Bridge opened in 2009, this road is now westbound only.

At the Samuel Beckett Bridge, which is itself unnumbered, the R813 takes over as the main road (even though R813 traffic can't join here), and also picks up the status of the Outer Orbital! It is evident that the first section of the R813 has been made somewhat redundant by the opening of the new bridge.

The final section of the route runs along Cardiff Lane and the start of Macken Street, ending at Pearse Street, where the Outer Orbital continues as an unclassified road. This part of town was regenerated in the early 21st century, changing from being an industrial area to a commercial area, with Facebook being the most well-known tenant.

The 1970s plan for Dublin had a road with a similar role as the R813, but on a different route. It would have taken a totally new route from City Quay, ending up on Hanover Quay, which would have been a main route out of (but not in to) the city. The area to the west of Macken Street would have been unrecognisable because of the large motorway running overhead.
