Project description

On the 18th of November 2014, the N7 overpass at Newlands Cross was officially opened 3 months ahead of schedule.

BAM Building Limited are currently undertaking construction work on the N7 Newlands Cross & N11 Arklow Rathnew PPP scheme. The scheme consists of the following elements;

- The design, construction, operation, maintenance and financing of approximately 16.5 kilometres of dual carriageway linking the existing Arklow Bypass with the existing Rathnew/Ashford Bypass in Co. Wicklow, together with several kilometres of associated side roads and link roads.

- The design, construction and financing of the upgrading of the existing Newlands Cross N7 Naas Road / R113 Belgard/Fonthill Road at-grade junction to a grade-separated junction, resulting in the creation of an N7 overpass.

- The design, construction, operation, maintenance and financing of the N11 Gorey North Service Area.

- An additional 31km section of the existing N11 route (Arklow Bypass and Arklow-Gorey Bypass) will also form part of the Project Road and will be operated and maintained by the PPP Concession Co.

All such elements of work set out above are approximate only and may be reduced or added to by the Authority following dialogue with those Candidates selected to proceed to the next stage of the competition or otherwise at the Authority's absolute discretion. The Authority may also extend the operation and maintenance elements to include other parts of the national road network.

Construction work on the overall scheme is expected to be complete by Q4 2015. The break down of the schedules of these works is as follows;

N11 Arklow / Rathnew dual carriageway - Autumn 2015
Upgrade works to existing N11 - Summer 2014
Gorey Service Area and Interchange - Winter 2014
