Start date onsite probably 2018 for this scheme.

Some EU funding for this one so it could be brought forward to a late 2018 start.

Two shots from the construction of the N25 New Ross bypass.

First from the project website:


The second posted by user allthedoyles on boards.ie
This is the west bank of the Barrow estuary, so called Pink Rock:


I was hoping they would be a bit more advanced by now.

Anyway, I'm hoping to visit New Ross some time next spring or summer and by then there should be more to photograph

Most of those photos are of the M18 only Geogregor. The M17 further north is way more advanced and only needs the wearing coat and lines painted in many parts. Same with the short N17 Tuam Bypass section north of that again.

The M17, M18 and the preexisting M6 all come together at the 3 level stack junction pictured a few times in the last post. In the very last photo you see Barrier and sub courses already installed on the M17 (left) and only really gravel on the M18 (right or top).

In the first photo you see a forestry area to the top left.. that forestry is where Apple will build their main EU Data Center starting (hopefully) next year some time.

I estimate the M17 (and 3 level stack) will be in service by July 2017 and the M18 by November/December 2017 but possibly later than that.

They are from a month ago but nice aerial views:














These two are from Tuam bypass if I'm correct:

I just noticed a new issue of newsletter on the N25 New Ross bypass project website:
http://www.n25newross.ie/wordpress/w...Dec2016-D5.pdf

It's pity that they don't post some photos on the website as construction seems to be gathering speed.

Two shots from the N25 New Ross bypass construction, specifically from the location of the new bridge over River Barrow.

Very difficult to find any decent photos from some Irish road projects. M17/M18 is well documented on boards.ie by one dedicated forumer but other projects are bad.

The project website only has some shots from February.

The photos below were from BAM Twitter, if I'm not wrong, I dug them out googling around.

I'm not sure the final design of the New Ross Bridge is signed off yet between all parties.



They have finished piling on one side anyway. I think this is the main anchorage structure.

Do you know when was this picture taken? It all looks like from some shots from early March, we are approaching May now.

I'm really curious how is the progressing by now.

I think late March/early April. I would think that the casting the base and then the slipforming of the anchor tower will start late May or June after everyone is finally happy that they ain't gone started a leaning tower with vertical and lateral stresses and on an Extrados kinda project of all places.
