In Progress

Traffic Management

  • In order to minimise disruption to traffic flows, diversions will be in place for the duration of the works.
  • A stop go system will be in place at the location of the works with vehicle triggered traffic lights in operation outside of working hours. Traffic flow is therefore maintained in Adare however diversions to and from Limerick are recommended.
  • The traffic management plan will be assessed throughout the duration of the works.



  • Diversion indicated in Newcastle West.
  • Vehicles to take R518 to Rourkes Cross Junction and proceed on N20 in the direction of Limerick.

Supplementary Eastbound Diversion

  • Diversion indicated at N21 eastbound slipway at Rathkeale directing traffic to the R518 toward Askeaton.
  • Vehicles to take the L1250 to N69 and N69 to Limerick/N18 Dock Road Interchange/M20 Rossbrien Interchange.

(Note: Roadworks will also be ongoing on the N69 at Kilcornan in this time period.)
