N7 Naas Road/Newlands Cross Traffic Diversion Eastbound to Red Cow/M50

On Tuesday the 11st of February commencing at 21:30hr (9:30PM) mainline traffic travelling from the N7 Naas road (Eastbound) to the M50/Red Cow Interchange will be diverted onto three new temporary lanes.

Motorists will notice the change to the layout on Wednesday morning, 12th of February.

Please Note: Traffic delays can be expected while diversion is being put in place.

These temporary diversions are designed to permanent road standards and will include the construction and commissioning of: Road pavements, Drainage, Public Lighting, Cycleways and Footways (east of junction only), Traffic Signals and ITS equipment

The N7 Newlands Cross Junction Upgrade will replace the existing traffic signal controlled junction at Newlands Cross. The new flyover will carry the N7 traffic up and over the R113 Fonthill / Belgard Roads, thus minimising local traffic impact. The Newlands Cross junction upgrade will mean the removal of the last set of traffic lights on the National network between the border and Cork, Waterford and Limerick. The flyover will remove a bottleneck on the national roads system affecting 80,000 car users a day. The scheme will reduce journey times significantly for interurban and local motorists. Opening Spring 2015
