THE NATIONAL ROADS Authority have released a list of the 50 worst road bends in Ireland that need to be fixed.
Around half of the bends chosen are currently under construction, the other half are in planning.
Sean O’Neill spokesperson for the NRA said the bends were picked by the number of accidents that occurred on them or around them. He added, “a lot of accidents happen at the end of straight roads when people get surprised by a sudden bend in the road”.
At seven each, Tipperary and Limerick are the counties with the most bad bends that need to be fixed, followed by Kerry and Cork with six each.
To give you the full effect of what some of the bad bends look like, we put together a slideshow, from the NRA’s list of 50, of the 10 worst bends on Irish roads:
