€400,000 allocated to upgrade of N3 - M50

Friday, December 17, 2021

Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) has just announced the greenways and roads allocations for 2022. Fingal county council has been allocated €1.1 million of which €400,000 is for the upgrade of the N3 to M50 road.

In total €616m of Exchequer funds have been provided for national roads in 2022 (regional and local roads are allocated separately). The funding allocations are made having regard for the National Development Plan 2021-2030 (NDP), which balances investment in transport against other priorities of Government on housing and health.

Fingal has been working in collaboration with Meath County Council and TII, to develop a multi-modal transport scheme along the section of the N3 between the M50 and Clonee. This will help to relieve congestion and focus on improving long term access to public transport with bus connects. It will also see the upgrade the the Castaheany interchange.

The proposed development will improve journey times and reliability of the N3 corridor which will support the sustainable economic development of the wider region. It will also enhance safety for all road users on the surrounding local road network by improving the operational efficiency of the N3 corridor. The provision of an inbound bus lane and reduction in queuing times will facilitate an increased modal share for buses along the N3 corridor.
