The R735 regional road link between Adamstown and Clonroche has reopened to traffic having caused severe local access inconvenience since closure following the excessive rainfall that fell on Christmas Day.
Aughnaglower Bridge, known locally as Chapel Bridge, was washed away completely in the floods. Wexford County Council has acted swiftly in reopening the road with a new layout and temporary crossing and while care is necessary the roadway is open again.
Many bridges were damaged across Co. Wexford in the Christmas Day downpour and engineering inspections have been conducted with a view to repairs or replacement as quickly as possible.
