Rxxx Navan-Drogheda (Replaces N51)
||Could Open : 2020||Status : Not under consideration|
The N52 upgrade, described elsewhere on this site, is a highly important cross-country connector - but its intention is to run diagonally across the country connecting the southwest with the northeast. It hits a point just shy of the M1 halfway between Dundalk and Drogheda, bringing traffic within spitting distance of the border and eventually Belfast. For Drogheda-bound traffic, the N51 road splits off and heads east. This route also serves as the main Navan-Drogheda road.
|Origin||East of Navan|
|Terminates||M1 west of Drogheda|
|Places Served||Navan, Drogheda|
"This road is badly needed due to the high levels of traffic between Navan and Drogheda and a new bridge over the Boyne on the east side of Navan would greatly aid traffic congestion in the town."
