The bypass will include a new 900m three-tower extradosed bridge, which will cross the River Barrow roughly 6KM south of New Ross Bridge. It is hoped that the new 14KM-long dual-carriageway will alleviate traffic delays in the area by allowing motorists to bypass known bottlenecks at New Ross bridge and quay.

An estimated 300 jobs are expected to be created throughout the course of its construction.
