MOTORISTS travelling the main N11/M11 route between County Wexford and Dublin will face a diversion for the next year between Jack White's and Lil Doyle's pub. The diversion comes into force today (Tuesday) and will remain in place until the new dual carriageway opens, which is currently scheduled to be in August of next year.
The NRA says that to facilitate construction of the new N11 dual carriageway between Arklow and Rathnew, traffic will be diverted off the existing N11 carriageway at Kilmurray.
The area of the N11 affected is located approximately halfway between the Jack White's and Lil Doyle's crossroads.
Traffic travelling northbound will leave the N11 approx 1.5 km north of Jack Whites and travel on a new temporary alignment parallel to the existing N11 for approximately 1.3 km and rejoin the existing N11 approximately 1 km south of Lil Doyles.
Southbound traffic will leave the N11 approximately 1km south of Lil Doyle's and follow this route in reverse.
Motorists are urged to take great caution on the approach to this diversion and to obey the 60 km/h speed limit which is in place.
