Wicklow is served by two national roads - the N11 and the N81, both of which connect to the M50 motorway, providing ease of access to and from the County. The national road network in the County provides an essential means of access to the metropolitan area. The capacity of these existing roads has come under increasing pressure from the ever-increasing number of commuters to Dublin.
With regard to the M11/N11, the initial planning stages of the N11/M11 Junction 4 to Junction 14 Improvement Scheme, which is identified in the National Development Plan 2018-2027 as one of the 20 priority National Roads to be progressed in order to enable the continued economic development of the state, has commenced.
The TII have also identified sections of the N81 for upgrade works.
