New Ross, the longest extradosed bridge in the world

Jul 10, 2018
This section of the N25 will become a crucial component of Ireland’s transportation infrastructure, and part of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). The project will improve access to the east side of the island, as well as reduce congestion and accidents in the area.

The bridge over the Barrow River, is an extradosed structure 887 m in length, making it the longest bridge of its kind in the world. This type of bridge is characterised by its cables set at lower angles, meaning that pylons are shorter in relation to deck span lengths.

 Comprehensive service

ULMA provided comprehensive services, from the bid and design to material provisioning and closing the project. One of the key factors in the decision to rely on ULMA as a supplier was the comprehensive technical solution proposed, as well as its logistical capacity to provision the tonnes of material necessary on schedule. Coordination with the client and a continual onsite presence allowed ULMA to respond effectively and rapidly to any circumstances that arose in the project.
