N87 Ballyconnell Relief Road

The N87 Ballyconnell Relief Road project comprised the construction of 1.5km of new single carriageway, together with a combined Cycleway & Footway over the extent of the mainline and a 36.5m span Bridge crossing the Woodford River. The scheme deliveried a new link road around the southeast of Ballyconnell, enabling the large volumes of traffic, including HGV’s, using this stragegic North-South route to bypass the town.
