M7 Motorway

Please note that from Monday, 26th November 2018, Go Safe vans will be deployed on an ongoing basis to carry out enforcement of the 60km/h speed limit within the M7 works zone, between Junction 8 (Johnstown) and Junction 11 (M9 Merge).  

We thank the public for their co-operation and we request motorists to heed the speed limits when travelling through the works zone #arrivealive.


With close proximity of the works and associated risked of constructing adjacent to live traffic, the “Go Safe” vans are a welcoming sight to the Construction team on the M7 Motorway widening scheme. With these vans rolling out in the coming days, the primary intention is help make the M7 a much safer environment for the many ground workers presently tasked with delivering this scheme. It is also anticipated that with more and more motorists now complying with the current speed limits, the number and severity of accidents currently being witnessed through the Works will decrease significantly.
