See here.

I wonder what NTR stands for. Perhaps nascbhóthar thiar riarachán (West link road authority)?

@andyg: Not the right NTR. On the map of asset locations on their site you can see they don't own a toll road around Dublin.

@eurocoin: where did you get that info?

West-Link
The West-Link (Irish: Droichead an Nascbhóthair Thiar) is a toll bridge (actually twin bridges) on the M50 motorway to the west of Dublin, Ireland, operated by BetEire Flow Limited (trading as eFlow) for the National Roads Authority.

Quote:
Prior to 29 August 2008, tolling was usually by cash payment at a toll plaza to the former operators NTR plc. A prepaid tag system, Eazy Pass, was also used since the early 2000s but was not barrier-free unlike the present arrangements.
