M8 - Fermoy bypass
Looking east over Fermoy
I've been using the M8 quite a bit since it opened. A nice road; not brilliant but nice and with a very scary breakdown lane, I doubt a truck will fit into it. Anyway, I deffinately say this test motorway was a success. I absolutely think that this 2 feet of prototype motorway is enough and now the real Dublin to Cork motorway can commence.
Lets face it, this tolled national route is a disaster. It doesnt matter how good the road is if nobody uses it, and nobody is using it. It's funny to enter the motorway at evening and look at all the trucks climbing Watergrass Hill to the left. Nearly every time I use it, I have the motorway to myself.
The only part of the road that kinda looks like an Autobahn. Don't worry folks I was safe, I didnt drive and photograph, I stopped up dead on the motorway first!
[EDIT 05.12.06] Due to some confusion I now clearly state that I did NOT stop to take the pictures... most people got the joke but some didnt =(
