Co Kildare company scoops €220 million contract
17:27 Tuesday 26th of January 2016

A Co Kildare company has been contracted with the much anticipated New Ross bypass estimated to be worth €220 million.

BAM, with headquarters in Kill, have been awarded the project.

The project includes a major crossing of the River Barrow by way of a three tower Extrados bridge approximately 900m in length with 36m clearance over the river channel, 13.6km of dual carriageway (N25 & N30 routes) and 1.2km of single carriageway (New Ross N30 route). The bridge will extend from Pink Point in Co Kilkenny to Stokestown in Co Wexford. This major investment in Ireland’s infrastructure will remove a bottleneck in the South East and improve access from Cork and Waterford to the port of Rosslare.

The PPP project, which has a value of approximately €220 million, will involve BAM Group Ireland, BAM PPP, Iridium and Dragados, with the consortium referred to as BAM Iridium.
