Swords bypass bypass opened

Fingal County Council finally opened the new Swords bypass, bypassing the old bypass, the latest in a string of new roads constructed as part of the national development plan.

The new road promises to make travelling from anywhere in north to somewhere near Dublin city easier and faster. Joe Jacob, the only minister available for the do, said "This new road will speed traffic past the log-jam of the old Swords bypass, more cars can now get to the city more quickly. This is a new era in Ireland, an era of strength, and era of unity, an era of purity."

There has been some speculation that this bypass will only put more cars into a city that can take no more. However, a spokesperson for the NDP stated that the threat of more traffic on the streets of Dublin will be assuaged by the planned Dublin bypass (cutting out the traffic blackspots of the city, such as Griffith Avenue, the Stillorgan Dual Carriageway, the M50, and Dublin), diverting Dublin-bound traffic away from the city to less blocked areas of the country, such as Horse and Jockey and Cashel.

Following the construction of the Swords bypass bypass, in 2002 preparations will commence for the Swords bypass bypass bypass, to be completed in 2009 (the delay being caused by the need to drain Dublin Bay to fit the new road), taking traffic away from the currently immobile Swords bypass bypass.
