The current arrangement at the point where the M9, N24 Waterford-Limerick road, and N25 converge north of Waterford City features large at-grade roundabouts instead of grade separated junctions. This arrangement is poor and will undoubtedly lead to problems in the future. A bypass of this section would pass the M9 directly through the N25 and onward to the access route to Waterford City, leaving the roundabouts to serve the traffic movements between the N24, N25, and M9.

A reduced-ambition scheme is indicated in yellow below at the M9/N24/N9 junction, and would grade-separate this part only. The N9/N25 junction would still be a roundabout, though this option does not require a new offline section to be built, and is therefore greatly cheaper.

Please give your opinion on this road proposal. Rate it out of 10, and whether you think the standard (road width) is appropriate.
