Just like magic the speed limit on the N3 from Kells-Dublin dropped from 100 km/h to 80 km/h when the M3 opened.

Hardly anything to do with forcing you onto the motorway..?

    The speed limit changed because it went from a N to a R route. Would agree that the higher limit should apply. I understand that roads can have limits brought up from the maximum for that type of road. For example, the M2 previous to m-way designation had a limit of 120 (when it was the N2).

    The problem is that MCC may allow development on the route that will prevent the speed limit being raised.
