Storm Damage

Please take additional care if you travel through or close to the site over the next few days, as there has been a lot of debris from trees and debris on the local roads from the storm that passed through on Monday 16th October. There may be additional clean-up crews on roads to clear fallen trees and debris. It is also the time of year when the leaves are falling and these make the roads particularly slippery so please drive with care.

If there is anything with regard to the site that you think may need attention after the storm please contact out hotline 1 800 815 672

 What’s happening Now


Earthworks are continuing at pace with the northern end of the scheme being the busiest at present. Some local roads have been temporarily diverted to allow the bridge structures to be constructed in Stokestown, Ryleen and Creaken.

Traffic management is now more visible as we progress works at road crossings, we would ask that motorists take caution and we thank them for their patience.

Works on the River Barrow Bridge have turned to pier stem construction, some of which are now visible on both sides of the river, there is some additional piling required for temporary supports about to commence on the east side of the river.

Structures have made good progress on accommodation underpasses and water course culverts, some bridge structures have started along local roads.

Speed limit restrictions are now in place on the N25 at Ballymacar along the temporary diversion, it is expected the speed restriction at Glenmore will be in place mid-July.

Archaeology on the Project

Local Economic Impact of the N25 new Ross Bypass

BAM Dragados JV understands the importance of working with the local community and local businesses. BAM Dragados JV are committed to creating jobs locally throughout the construction process. BAM Dragados JV will source materials locally wherever possible and use local contractors who have the required expertise and experience for the different phases of construction.  The projected overall workforce will be in excess of 300 people at its peak.

There is also the indirect increased economic benefit from the project through the employees using local small businesses such as shops, cafes, restaurants, petrol stations and hotels.

During the course of the works we will actively engage with local stakeholders and work with local suppliers. We will advise suppliers on requirements for inclusion on our supply chain.

BAM Dragados JV are committed to employing as many people from the region as possible.

The New Ross N25 Bypass scheme will continue supporting the local economy well beyond the completion of the construction works. The companies assigned to the project will carry out its maintenance for 25 years after its construction, ensuring that the road is safe and contributing with support of the local business and workforce to the wealth of the local community.
