M1 motorway

Almost the entirity of the N1 has been upgraded to motorway standard and is designated the M1 motorway. At 83km it is the longest motorway in Ireland. As of 2005, it runs from south of the M50 ring road in Dublin, to just north of Dundalk town, bypassing the intermediate towns through which the original route travelled. The original N1 route now forms the R132 [1]. On directional roadsigns along the N1 route, the N1 designation is only present between Dublin city centre and Whitehall (the motorway section of the N1 uses the M1 designation). Small yellow route markers along the motorway route also read N1. Old signage marked "N1" has not been updated/removed in some locations along the R132.

The motorway was built in several stages as short disconnected bypasses, replacing the original N1 route. The first section opened was the Airport Motorway between Whitehall and Dublin Airport, only the second motorway opened in the Republic of Ireland, and the only section with the 1980s style direction signs still intact. Part of this original M1 is now a spur to Dublin Airport, while another part. between Whitehall to the M50 interchange is now narrowed to two lanes (although still grade separated and with full motorway regulations) as a result of the Dublin Port Tunnel work. This configuration will remain the completion of the tunnel, however this section will lose its motorway status and revert to N1 (see below).

There is a toll on the motorway south of Drogheda to fund the construction of the motorway. Work began in 2004 on a bypass of Dundalk, and was completed three months ahead of schedule in 2005, extending the motorway to just south of the Border. Construction commenced in 2005 on a cross-border stretch of dual-carriageway linking the northern end of the M1 with the A1 near Newry in County Down. This is due completion in Quarter 2 of 2007. The Northern Ireland authorities have no plans to replace the A1 route (currently a mixture of single and dual carriageway) with motorway, although the upgrading of the remaining single carriageway stretches to dual carriageway is underway, as well as plans for several grade separated junctions. Currently, to drive from Dublin to Belfast, one travels along the M1, N1, A1 and M1 (Northern Ireland).

2006 changes

As of August 2006, new signage (some of which is currently blanked out) has been erected south of the M50 interchange redesignating the road as the M50 as far as the Dublin Port Tunnel portals, and as the non-motorway N1 thereafter ("end of motorway regulations" signs have been erected at the demerge with the Port Tunnel (M50 Junction 1) southbound). Northbound, the Santry/Coolock exit slip is now the exit for non-motorway traffic, with motorway regulations beginning just after this slip. No Statutory Instrument revoking the motorway regulations has been published yet, meaning that these signs would not yet have legal effect. August 2006 is the eighth month of that year, and has yet to occur. ...
