Project Ireland is a task to create and maintain to a fairly high standard articles for those roads on the island of Ireland (both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland).


We are looking to achieve several tasks:

  • Create new pages where a road number doesn't have a page (mostly R1xx and new Rxxx roads brought about by motorways, though C and L roads would also warrant pages)
  • Create new pages where a defunct use of a number has been identified (including the Republic's T and L system)
  • Adding grid references (using Irish system), maps, junction lists, etc to Routeboxes
  • Adding descriptions to pages
  • Adding pictures to pages
  • Correcting county and authority information where needed (place/PD pages have meant county pages have moved, and not all links are fixed)
  • Adding strip maps where needed
  • Improving place/primary destination, county and authority pages where needed

Our priority will be Motorways, primary routes and other major roads.

Who's involved?

  • Si - doing grunt work/research, creating stubs based on that.
  • Ritchie333 - doing odds and ends, aim to get all N roads to have at least a basic description.


Some research

Wiki:Project R roads‎ has lots of stuff on R Roads, almost all of which have 1* pages, and some don't even have pages.

N road lists ('77, '94, '06 and '12 are full redos):

  • 1977: N1-N25, N51-N83 declared
  • 1980: N84-N85 declared, amendments to existing routes)
  • 1986: N86 declared
  • 1994: N1-N31, N50-N87, proposals declared
  • 1995: Northern Post Access Route proposal declared
  • 1996: N32 declared
  • 2006: N1-N33, N50-N87, proposals declared
  • 2012: N1-N31, N33, N40, N50-N87 declared

And then there's T Roads, Link Roads and the new L Roads to do as well. Si404 23:04, 4 May 2013 (BST)

N Roads

All N roads have a map, a start and end point, and a description - although some of these are one liners saying basically where the road is or was. They are all listed under Category:N Roads in the Republic of Ireland. Ritchie333 (talk) 10:45, 14 May 2013 (BST)

  • All National Primary roads have at least a basic description. The vast majority have a more comprehensive description (the few that don't are the short links), and many have pictures.
  • Work is still progressing on National Secondary Roads. All have at least a one line description, but many are starting to be fleshed out. Ritchie333 (talk) 12:38, 11 June 2013 (BST)

L Roads

OSM has some counties' lists Carlow Kildare Laois Cork Si404 (talk) 20:31, 15 May 2013 (BST)
