An extremely ambitious proposal has been put forward that could potentially see an all-Ireland motorway in place by 2040.

The motorway was a major component of a report created by the Joint Business Council (JBC) of Ibec and CBI Northern Ireland calling for urgent investment in Irish infrastructure as the "efficient movement of people, capital, goods and services is crucial to an effective, competitive and modern economy".

Here is our motorway network as it currently is.

It's estimated that, if the plan were to be picked up, it would be delivered by 2040. But how most would it cost to complete, you ask? €15 billion.
