The proposed N-25 New Ross Bypass includes the construction of sections of both the N-25 and N-30 routes. More particularly it is envisaged that the road PPP project will comprise works of approximately 14.6 km of dual carriageway (N-25 & N-30 routes) and 1.2 km of single carriageway (New Ross N30 route).
