Hawkeye Photography recently had the pleasure of carrying out the first of four videos planned for the construction of the M11 PPP Scheme.
The scheme comprises of a new motorway from the end of the Gorey Bypass at Clogh to the townland of Scurlockbush, south of Enniscorthy. The scheme also includes a bypass of the N30 to the west of Enniscorthy and a link road to the N80.
The realigned route will comprise the provision of approximately 27 km of M11 Mainline, with a standard dual motorway carriageway type. In addition, approximately 8 km of single carriageway will be constructed to bypass Enniscorthy to the west by linking the existing N11 to the existing N30 and also approximately 4 km of dual carriageway link road will connect the existing N11 / N80 junction north of Enniscorthy to the M11 Mainline.
It will provide a high quality safe link within the South East region and ease congestion by bypassing Ferns, Camolin and Enniscorthy.
The main structural feature of the scheme will be a crossing of the River Slaney combined with an adjacent crossing of the Dublin-Rosslare railway line.
Hawkeye Photography carried out the work on behalf of Apex Surveys having been awarded the job by Halcrow Barry, Technical Advisors for the Client, TII. The project is being constructed by Bam Civil Dragados with Arup RPS acting as the contractors designers. The new road will be operational in August 2019, followed by a 25 year concession period for the consortium.
The biggest challenge we faced when capturing the footage in February was the weather, trying to get a window through the wind and rain. We did manage having to finish the filming in early March.
I thoroughly enjoyed capturing the footage and look forward to the next one and seeing the progress that has been made.
