N11 Arklow to Rathnew

Case Study

The N11 Arklow to Rathnew Scheme consisted of the construction of over 16km of dual carriageway between the Arklow Bypass and the Ashford Rathnew Bypass in County Wicklow. This will create 90km of motorway/dual carriageway from Dublin to Gorey. Work on site began in June 2013 cost approximately €282 million. Construction of the Scheme was undertaken by Bam Contractors. The Road was officially open to traffic on the 13th of July 2015, 3 months ahead of schedule.

Mr. Fred Barry, Chief Executive of the National Roads Authority said; “Replacing this section of the N11 between Arklow and Rathnew, known for its notorious bends, with a modern motorway will result in significant safety improvements for all road-users,”

Banagher Precast Concrete supplied eight bridge structures for the Project. In total we supplied over 4,000 metres of Bridge Beams to the Scheme, these included the Banagher MY Beam and the Banagher W Beam. Close collaboration between the Team in Banagher, our customer Bam Contractors and their Designers was key to the successful completion of the Project within budget and ahead of schedule.

Thanks to all the Team in Bam and we look forward to collaborating on the next project.
