M11 Gorey to Enniscorthy
|Local Authority:||Wexford County Council|
|Description:||The proposed scheme comprises approximately 28 km of new motorway from the end of the Gorey Bypass to the townland of Scurlockbush, south of Enniscorthy. The scheme also includes an 8 km N30 bypass to the west of Enniscorthy and a 4 km N80 link road which will connect the N80 at Scarawalsh to the new M11. The scheme will bypass Ferns, Camolin and Enniscorthy and will incorporate a new bridge crossing of the River Slaney north of Enniscorthy.
The Motorway Order and EIS were published in June 2009 and the scheme has received An Bord Pleanála approval. The tender process for the PPP scheme commenced with the publication of an OJEU Notice on the 22 March 2010, but was susequently terminated due to lack of funding. Following the announcement of the Governments Stimulus Plan in 2012, the tender process will restart in 2013.
This project has been funded by the Irish Government under the National Development Plan, 2000-2006 and the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport. This project is being delivered through the Authority’s PPP mechanism.
