N3 virginia Bypass
N3 Virginia Bypass.
Cavan County Council, in partnership with Meath County Council and in association with Transport Infrastructure Ireland, is progressing the development of the N3 Virginia Bypass scheme. The M3 Motorway and N3 national primary route form a strategic radial corridor linking Dublin with Cavan and onward to Enniskillen and beyond to Sligo and Letterkenny. Virginia is the last remaining town on the N3 national route from Dublin to the NI Border which has not been bypassed.
The scheme commences at the end of the existing N3 dual carriageway at Derver, north of Kells in Co. Meath and extends to the existing N3 north of Virginia Town in Co. Cavan. Cavan County Council has appointed Barry Transportation to advance the scheme through the Planning and Design phases.
