Winter Maintenance Policy statement (1st October to 15th May):

DirectRoute Limerick Ltd is responsible for Winter Maintenance activities on the Limerick Tunnel PPP including both precautionary and reactive salt treatments of the N18 Project Road.

This runs from Junction 1 through to Junction 4 of the N18, including all interchanges and associated roundabouts.

  •  Rossbrien Interchange (M7 Junction 30/ M20 Junction 1/ N18 Junction 1)
  •  Dock Road Slip Roads and Roundabouts
  •  Clonmacken Link Road and Roundabout (R527 Condell Road)
  •  Cratloemoyle Interchange and Roundabout (N18 Junction 4)

It is Directroute’s policy that safe passage along the Project Road and Tunnel is not endangered by snow or ice and to keep to a minimum delays caused by adverse weather, so
far as is reasonably practical. Road salt treatments in conjunction with snow ploughing, where necessary, will be used to meet these criteria
To this end Directroute will be carefully monitoring the road and weather conditions from 1st October to 15th May each year to ensure that suitable precautionary treatments are applied
to the Project Road and that prompt response is made to any deterioration of weather conditions or forecast. A Winter Maintenance Management Plan for each year sets out the
arrangements for all aspects of winter maintenance.
