Apparently, the new bridge and N9/N25 link roads & bridge are set to open soon … however on first look, it seems that the roads and connecting sections are not 100% finished.
While driving from Waterford on to the N9, it doesn’t seem like the roads could be opened anytime soon. In the Munster Express in May/June it was announced that the bridge and roads would be open by late September / early October. (see blog post of August 15th). It will be interesting to see if the recent financial problems in the country might have affected the final completion date.
Some rumours state that the bridge will be opened to pedestrians for one day – It will be interesting to see what heppens over the next few weeks and if we will be using the new bridge in the next few weeks.
