Description

The N25 through Waterford passes along congested city quays and crosses the River Suir on the open-span Rice Bridge, the only crossing for motor traffic in the city, with an average daily traffic load of 40.000 vehicles. The need for a second river crossing had been recognised over many years.

By providing a bypass route including a new crossing of the River Suir, the N25 Waterford Bypass PPP scheme has greatly eased traffic congestion and benefited the local community of Waterford by improving the environment and travel times.

The N25 Bypass project comprises the design and construction of 18 Km of new dual carriageway and corresponding links/side roads, with 20 structures; including 9 Viaducts, 7 overbridges and 4 underpasses.

As a member of the design consortium, Eptisa provided the detailed design of Structures & Earthworks of the section located north to the River Suir (including N9 link and corresponding side roads), pavement detailed design for the whole scheme, site supervision of the section located north to the River Suir (including N9 link and corresponding side roads).
