Taking A Look At The Proposed New Bridge For Enniscorthy Town

Enniscorthy town may be set for a revamp…

An application from the Wexford County Council shows that Enniscorthy could be in for a revamp, with an investment worth approximately 40-50 million euro.

With the River Slaney flowing through the heart of its town, Enniscorthy town is often prone to flooding. The project proposes that the Seamus Rafter Bridge be removed, and that a new bridge is constructed 100m downstream.

For the Seamus Rafter bridge, it is proposed that it is turned into a new pedestrian bridge.

Along with the relocation of the bridge, a number of other measures were proposed to prevent flooding in Enniscorthy. These include river channel widening, river deepening, and the construction of extensive glass panelled flood walls through the town.

The latest application to the Department can be viewed here, while a FAQ about the project is publicly available on the Enniscorthy Flood Defence Scheme website.
