Instead of building a bridge across Ireland's second longest river, carrying important regional & international traffic (including much heavy freight from & to ports) away from notorious rush hour jams & improving local transport links, the gombeen political classes of Ireland will now choose to spend the money on useless projects elsewhere.

Just watch the Parish Pump politicians of the West demanding that their local projects go to the top of the list instead

Bump! I just created this dedicated New Ross Bypass thread by moving posts from various M11 and N25 threads.



This is coupled in a PPP bundle with the M11 Enniscorthy Bypass. From the NRA's second round PPP programme document (attached):

Quote:
The N25 New Ross Bypass scheme commences at Glenmore in County Kilkenny and crosses over the River Barrow via Extrados Bridge at Pink Point in County Kilkenny and Stokestown in County Wexford. It then continues in an easterly direction where the bypass intersects with the R733 in Camlin and continues in a north easterly direction to connect to the N25 at Ballymacar Bridge. From there the bypass route continues to the northeast finishing at the N30, at a point to the east of Corcoran’s Cross.

Scheme Features:
  • Three at grade roundabout junctions at Glenmore (N25), Ballymacarbridge (N25), Corcoran’s Cross (N30) and a compact grade separated junction at Camlin (R733).
  • River Barrow crossing with a 36m clearance of the river channel. The crossing will be by way of a 3 tower Extrados bridge and the structure will extend for approximately 900 metres from Pink Point in Co. Kilkenny to Stokestown in Co. Wexford;
  • 1 No. Railway Bridge – an overbridge of the disused New Ross/ Waterford railway line near Glenmore;
  • 11 No. Road Bridges;
  • 13 minor structures such as accommodation underpasses.

Five bids for bypass

(New Ross Standard, print edition, 19 October 2010)

Five consortia have been shortlisted to bid for the design and building of the Enniscorthy and New Ross by-passes in a private and public partnership arrangement.

It is expected that the preferred bidder will be selected early next year and contracts should be signed by the end of 2011.

I'm interested as to what they're going to do at the N30 end of this. The slightly better map (the one here is missing junctions even!) shows it ending mid-field as its meant to abut another project.

http://www.wexford.ie/wex/Department...le,8141,en.pdf

That scheme appears to have survived the chop but is only in prelim design stages - http://www.newrossecho.ie/news/story...lmhgb&cat=news

How to join the existing N30 without leaving future problems for a tie in is gonna be the issue here.

Will the New Ross Bypass be a Type 2 DC spec?

No full motorway standard apart from green signs and hatched hard shoulder lining.

New Ross bypass River Barrow bridge???

Will the New Ross bypass / River Barrow bridge ever be built? I was assuming that it was already shelved or even canceled but according to the local paper http://www.newrossstandard.ie/news/b...d-2895189.html it will still eventually happen!!

Are the government & NRA just making excuses to local politicians, this happens often enough so I'm assuming that's still the case here Everyone knows the country is broke so why not tell the truth???


Apologies if this subject is already covered in another tread that I can't find

Its in an un-cancelled PPP bundle, but its so far down the list that its many, many years off. We can't get people to take the higher priority, possibly cheaper, PPP bundles as it stands.

I presume PPP means it would be tolled,so one look at the waterford bridge and its high avoidance rate would be an instant turnoff

Untolled PPPs can and most likely will exist. There isn't enough traffic for a tolled one to be successful.

Looks like this thread could be active again :-) . Brendan Howlin is set to announce this as one of the schemes to go ahead over the next few years.
