Portuguese crew drafted in to finish Ireland’s longest bridge, linking Kilkenny and Wexford
IRELAND’S longest bridge – linking Kilkenny and Wexford – will be completed in less than two months.
The massive 887m Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge will join Glenmore to Corcoran’s Cross roundabout outside New Ross on the Wexford side.
A Portuguese crew has been drafted in to help finish the bridge, the centrepiece of the new 14km bypass of New Ross.
Project Liaison Officer Sean Dobbs of Wexford County Council told the New Ross Standard the bridge will meet in the middle of July.
Camera crews have been seen recording the bridge as it nears completion – the project has already featured in several international engineering magazines.
