The M50 is closing for repairs, please pay for your trip now

What with the M50 about to close for repairs, and as an addendum to our earlier remarks on the Dublin Port Canal, the Skanger notes that in the Fourth Schedule of the Dublin City Council Special Speed Limit Bye-Laws, 2006, speed limits for the Dublin Port Tunnel have been set at 80 kilometres per hour.

As a matter of public interest, the Skanger would like to inform you that 80 kilometres per hour is approximately 43.2 knots.

The bye-laws came into effect on 9 July 2006.

Provision for new helpful signage has also been made.

Lanes for bikes (dumped) and barges Tourists will be able to make their way from the Dublin Airport Medieval Theme Park to An Lár by way of L19 (blue ring) - it couldn't be easier (at least not without building a rail link)

The M50 will remain open but only as a carpark. It will be available as a park-and-ride facility for those hoping to use the revitalized canal network to commute.
