N30 Enniscorthy – New Ross
The N30 bypassing New Ross

The N30 is a short, but important link road between the M11 just north of Enniscorthy and the N25 at New Ross, allowing traffic between these areas to avoid Wexford.

At the Enniscorthy end, the route initially follows a bypass around the north of the town, opened on 18th July 2019, meeting the N80 and providing a new crossing of the River Urrin, before rejoining its old course at a roundabout. It then passes through Clonroche, heading towards New Ross. When it gets there then turns left to follow the river into New Ross, diverting away from the town centre on what passes for a Ring Road to meet the N25.

A newer N25 bypass of New Ross is currently under construction, and with it will be an additional section of dual carriageway link road to meet the N80.

History

What's now the N30 was originally mostly part of the T7 route from Dublin to Waterford (which also used parts of the N11 and N25). Upon classification of N roads, it became the N79 until upgraded to National Primary status in 1994.

The original route in New Ross ran further into town on what's now the R700, while at the Enniscorthy end the road previously started in the middle of the town on the N11 near the castle, at what was aa horrendously overloaded junction and headed south through the town before crossing the River Urrin and heading out into the countryside up to the edge of the River Barrow.

Future

A bypass of New Ross to the East is currently under construction. This will meet with the N25 at a new interchange from which the N25 will bypass New Ross on a new bridge. This will be entirely reduced dual carriageway.

This will leave the village of Clonroche as the only settlement to pass through and a generally quite high quality route.
