Miles of length
The M3 Toll Road entails an average saving of 17 minutes in driving time along the route. A reduction of more than 30% in the accident rate in comparison to the old N3 road is expected.
The biggest project ever carried out in Ireland
The M3 provides a strategic link between Dublin and the Northeast of Ireland. It runs from Clonee to the North of Kells, northeast of Dublin. With a length of 50 km and an investment exceeding 484 million Euros, the M3 highway is the biggest engineering project ever carried out in the Republic of Ireland.

Enormous cultural and tourism-related
This highway has released a large proportion of the surrounding urban centers from heavy goods transit. This is a vital boost to conservation of the area’s outstanding cultural heritage.
Responsible building and concern for the surroundings
Building the M3 has entailed more than 3.5 million m3 of excavations, a 6.3 million m3 embankment and transport of another 2.5 million m3 of earth to landfills. The route includes 41 Overbridges, 22 Underpasses, 6 interchanges and 2 Toll PLazas along the route.

Our projects serve as an economic engine for growth, supporting the well-being of the communities where we work and live. We worked with the consulting firm, Steer, to prepare the Economic and Community Impact of Ferrovial’s Toll Roads report.
The study measured the economic value generated in the regions we invest in and the benefits received by travelers from the start of each concession until December 31, 2022.
