Project Description:

The proposed scheme involved a number of alterations to the existing road layout at New Ross, Co. Wexford. These alterations would facilitate the proposed development of a new bypass scheme which included 14.6km of dual carriageway along the N25 & N30 national routes and 1.2km of single carriageway on the N30 at New Ross.

The scheme includes three at grade junctions at Glenmore (N25), Ballymacar Bridge (N25) and Corcoran’s Cross (N30) and a compact grade separated junction at Landscape (R733). The proposed bypass will cross the River Barrow with a 36m clearance of the river channel by means of a 3 tower extrados bridge which will extend for approximately 900m from Pink Point in Co. Kilkenny to Stokestown in Co. Wexford. The scheme will also include one Railway Bridge, and overbridge of the disused New Ross/Waterford railway line near Glenmore, 11 road bridges and 13 minor junctions such as accommodation underpasses.

What we delivered:

PMCE completed the Stage 1 Road Safety Audit in response to a commission from Dragados. The audit comprised an examination of all drawings and other information relating to the scheme, as supplied by the design team.
