WATCH: Dublin-style protected junction vs first Irish adaption of Dutch-style protected junction design

COMMENT & ANALYSIS: We’ve covered the differences between Dublin-style and Dutch-style junctions before, but now we’re getting to see then out in the wild in Dublin, with the former built and the latter under construction.
