Following on from a National Road Authority report submitted to the previous government last October which recommended eight new toll locations on Irish Motorways as well as an extension of tolling points on the M50, it has been reported that the NRA has now hired a team of consultants to devise plans for the introduction of these potential new tolls.
Likely tolling points
If the plan goes ahead, a multipoint tolling system would to be introduced along the M50. Other roads under review by consultants are:
- The N9 Carlow bypass on the Dublin to Waterford motorway
- The Dundalk bypass
- The N20 at Croom, Co. Limerick
- The N20 at Mallow, Co. Cork
- The N18 Ennis bypass and Jack Lynch Tunnel, Cork.
While the AA is firmly in opposition of these proposed new tolls which would add significantly to the cost of motoring for commuters in many areas of the country, we’re also keen to hear your views.
