M3 Motorway

RPS has played a central role in delivering the 60km motorway, which is the largest single road infrastructure project in Ireland to date.

Stretching the length of County Meath, from its border with Dublin at Clonee to the Meath/Cavan border, the new road covers 700 hectares of land and bypasses the towns of Navan, Kells and Dunshaughlin. The €1 billion scheme will take an hour off the journey from Dublin to Cavan at peak journey times.

RPS were responsible for the preliminary phases of the project leading to the granting of permission by An Bord Pleanála and provided technical advice and assistance during the tender, contract award and construction phases of the project. As well as providing technical advice during construction, RPS was also responsible for the preparation, supervision and administration of various ancillary contracts; including ground investigation, site clearance, and archaeological investigation.
