The N25 New Ross PPP Scheme improves regional, national and international connectivity on the N25 Cork to Rosslare Euroroute Route. It links the N25 with the N30 New Ross to Enniscorthy route.
This project involved the design, construction, financing, operation, and maintenance of approximately 13.6 km of new dual carriageway (N25 & N30 routes) and 1.2 km of new/upgraded single carriageway (New Ross N30) route and various structures (junctions and road bridges).
Works involve 14.8km of roadworks including:
- 4km of dual carriageway 1 km single lane, which will link the existing N25 at Glanmore to the R733 at Landscape via the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge.
- 9.6km of dual carriageway which links the R733 at Landscape to existing N25 at Ballymacar Bridge and continues to the proposed roundabout southeast of Corcoran’s Cross on the existing N30.
- 1.2km of single carriageway linking the roundabout southeast of Corcoran’s Cross to existing N30 to the East of Corcoran’s Cross.
