New motorway (M17/M18)

We are pleased to confirm that Geoworks7 has been installed as the Routine Maintenance Management System (RMMS) for the brand new M17/M18 Gort to Tuam motorway in Galway, which was opened in September 2017 by Shane Ross (Minister for Transport).

The 53km motorway was completed five months ahead of schedule, and will form part of the “Atlantic corridor” in Ireland which will eventually link Sligo to Cork. It includes the State’s first “bat bridge” which will allow bats and other mammals to traverse safely; the design draws on the Canadian experience of protecting moose populations, and aims to ensure the lesser horseshoe bat will retain the use of its important roosting site and feeding grounds.
