Naming of the New Bridge on N25 New Ross Bypass Public Consultation

Wexford County Council and Kilkenny County Council

Naming of Bridge on N25 New Ross Bypass Public Consultation Process

As part of the €230 million N25 New Ross Bypass Scheme, a significant new bridge will cross the River Barrow south of New Ross Town. The bridge structure will be a 3 Tower Extrados construction, 900 metres in length and on completion it will be the longest bridge in Ireland.

The new bridge will span the River Barrow, the second longest river in Ireland, from Dunganstown / Stokestown in Co. Wexford to the Pink Rock / Ballyverneen in Co. Kilkenny.

Given the size and importance of the bridge, both from an infrastructural development perspective and for its socio-economic potential for the New Ross area and entire south-east region, a relevant and fitting name should be conferred on the bridge.

As part of the process of selecting a suitable name for the bridge, a Public Consultation Procedure is now underway, members of the public can make a written submission, suggesting their preferred name for the bridge.
