THE €400m Gorey to Enniscorthy bypass will now extend beyond Oylegate village, after an agreement was reached with Transport Infrastructure Ireland.

Minister Brendan Howlin made the announcement at the sod turning for the New Ross bypass on Monday.

The €400m Gorey to Enniscorthy dual carriageway scheme will involve the construction of 39km of new national roads.

Minister Howlin said even though the contract for the works was signed and the design works had the bypass finishing on the Enniscorthy side of Oylegate, an agreement was reached whereby the bypass will now end on the Wexford side.
