M11 Gorey to Enniscorthy PPP Scheme, Wexford


    National Roads

    The M11 Gorey to Enniscorthy Public Private Partnership Scheme was one of the largest single road scheme projects under construction in the Republic of Ireland at the time and was the third transport PPP to be signed by the Government since 2012. Initiated under the Infrastructural Stimulus Programme, the project was delivered under the Capital Plan and represents a major investment in the country’s infrastructure and economic development programme.

    The scheme involved the design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance of 27 km of a new motorway from the end of the Gorey Bypass at Clogh to the townland of Scurlockbush, south of Enniscorthy. The scheme also included the design, construction and financing of the eight kilometre single carriageway bypass on the N30 to the west of Enniscorthy and a four kilometre link road to the N80.

    Included under the scheme were a total of 91 structures (two river crossings, one bridge over the railway, 20 overbridges, 35 underbridges and 39 culverts). The two river crossings were erected across the River Slaney and the River Urrin.

    The M11 Gorey to Enniscorthy Scheme forms a strategic component of the Irish motorway network, providing a high-quality safe link within the Southeast region. It also improves road user safety and eases congestion by bypassing Ferns, Camolin and Enniscorthy. The improvement of the N11/M11 route was a specific objective of Ireland’s infrastructure investment programme linking Dublin to the major port of Rosslare in County Wexford, providing the southeast region with the capacity to manage economic growth well into the future.
