Having opened up to public consultation online, the level of interest and concern regarding the proposed routes for the new N11/N25 Oylegate to Rosslare scheme is said to be incredibly high.

Such was the volume of calls, queries and submissions that Wexford County Council opted to extend the public consultation until Monday, August 3.

Speaking on Friday (10th), Director of Services at Wexford County Council Eamonn Hore said that the website for the project had seen 20,000 views since the previous Monday, while they had fielded 200 calls and received 65 feedback forms - a number they anticipate will grow significantly in the coming weeks. A total of 6,800 brochures were also delivered to houses in the affected areas, he said.
