This documentary series aims to track the construction progress of the New Ross Bypass and River Barrow Bridge and it’s impacts on the wider community.



What’s happening Now

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


New Ross Bypass Emergency Rescue at Height and Crushed Car Drills

In December 2017, New Ross Joint Venture, along with Wexford Fire Brigade, lead by Colm McGrath and the Ambulance Service, lead by Brendan Groves, instigated a Fall from Height Emergency Drill and a Crush by Moving Plant Emergency Drill. There was a great turnout down at Barrow Bridge East and a successful outcome to see our ‘dummy’ live to fight another day.

BAM Dragados along with the New Ross Joint Venture would like to thank all of those who attended and all of those who gave up their time to make the Drills a success.
