Toll Bridges and Roads in Ireland

M50 road

Toll roads have been in existence in Ireland since the 1980s when the East Link first opened. In general toll roads in Ireland impose a toll (levy or charge) on each vehicle using these roads. In recent years, large construction projects have been undertaken and funded by public private partnerships (PPP). This means that a private company provides part of the funding necessary to build the toll road in return for being allowed to toll the road for a set period of time.

All but the M50 work in a normal way, in that you pay your toll at a stop point along the road. The M50 however is a barrier free toll road which is to be paid within 24 hours of passing over the road.
