N22 Road Logo


Dual Carriageway : 38.3 km

The county of Kerry suffers from poor access. Towns such as Dingle, Cahersiveen, Listowel, and even large Tralee are far from any major trunk routes. Dual carriageway penetrating the county most of the way to Tralee and coming from both the Limerick and Cork directions would do much to redress this problem. The distances involved are great, however: over 100 kilometres would be needed. The N22 is programmed for some improvements west of Cork city, but since the 2010 spending review only the Ballyvourney-Macroom section is secure. There is no specific plan for the route west of that as far as the split between the N22 and N23 at Farranfore, but a dual carriageway will eventually be needed.

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