Dunkettle Interchange Roadworks UPDATE

- Posted on: 22/11/2022 -

The brand the brand-new Link E, Link A and Link G are now open on the Dunkettle Interchange.  Constructions crews worked through the night over the weekend to make sure the links would be opening on schedule.

The new Link E which will benefit motorists on the M8 who are looking to head east or towards Little Island with a free-low link road for Southbound traffic.

The second road, Link A, will provide a new route for traffic heading north through the Jack Lynch tunnel and wishing to access either Little Island or the N25 Eastbound. There will be significant alignment change and traffic wishing to utilise Link A to head east or to Little Island will need to utilise the left-hand lane of the Jack Lynch Tunnel.

The third road Link G will facilitate Link A/E traffic to the northern roundabout of the new Eastern Interchange if they wish to access Little Island.

With just under 100,000 vehicles using the Dunkettle interchange every day, the new works will aim to reduce traffic volumes on the existing interchanges and improve access to Little Island - and should make a huge difference people's daily commute.
