Newbridge South Orbital Relief Road

Nice video from the contractor, Murphy International Limited, showing the extent of the progression of works at the Newbridge South Orbital Relief Road at Littleconnell, Co Kildare. This is a prime example of DBFL’s ability to deliver significant infrastructure in a sensitive suburban setting with significant traffic management & utility co-ordination. This 1.5km road scheme when complete will provide a much needed piece of infrastructure for the town of Newbridge and an initial section of the Newbridge Interceptor Sewer for Irish Water.


The single carriageway section is 9.0m wide for approximately 0.6km with a 2.25m wide verge, 1.75m cyclepath and a 2.0m footpath on both sides and 7.5m wide for 0.4km with a 2.25m verge, 2.5m two way off-road cyclepath and 2.0m footpath on one side.  The dual carriageway section comprises of two 7.5m wide carriageways with a 2.6m central median and a 0.75m verge for approximately 0.4km.
