The contract for the long-awaited New Ross Bypass has been signed. In a message on Facebook, Labour Cllr. George Lawlor announced that Minister Brendan Howlin had signed the contract earlier this afternoon:

Minister Brendan Howlin has this afternoon signed the contract for the New Ross bypass. The €230 million scheme will involve the construction of 13.6 Km of dual carriageway. 250-300 jobs will be created during the construction and will massively benefit investment potential throughout Co. Wexford.

The bypass will consist of 14KM-long dual-carraigeway and a new 900m three-tower extradosed bridge, which will cross the River Barrow roughly 6KM south of New Ross Bridge.

New Ross Bridge

New Ross Bridge, which is notorious for its lengthy traffic delays.

It is hoped that the new bypass will alleviate traffic delays in the area by allowing motorists and freight companies to avoid known bottlenecks at New Ross bridge and quay.

An estimated 300 jobs will be created throughout the course of the project.
