At Newland's Cross on the N7, approaching from the West
Newlands Cross is a well-known crossroads in south-west Dublin in the county of South Dublin. It is the point where the N7 National Route to the South West and Mid West crosses an orbital local route, the R113. For many years this area roughly marked the place where Dublin City ended and the "country" began, though it is now inside the urban area.
The R113 joins Newlands to Tallaght in the South and to the Fonthill Road in Clondalkin village to the North; the cross itself is located at the southern end of Clondalkin.
A very busy traffic junction, as of 2013 it is the only remaining at-grade and signal controlled crossing of the N7 between the M50 and Limerick, but work is underway to upgrade it to a grade-separated interchange to relieve serious traffic congestion. The upgraded N7 will pass over the R113. Construction went to tender in August 2008 and preparatory work started in September 2008. Following delays, construction proper started in June 2013 and is expected to be completed within two years.
It was while queuing in traffic at nearby Boot Road junction that crime journalist Veronica Guerin was shot. A memorial to her is located at the site of the incident, the "Boot Road" slip approximately 300 metres west of the junction. References[edit sourceÂ | edit] Irish Times.
