Irish company Easytrip has announced that its electronic toll system will begin operations this month on the recently opened €500m N25 Waterford Bypass in the country.

The ten-lane road has dedicated electronic toll lanes in both directions.

The 23km road connects Slieverue and Kilmeaden, crossing over the River Suir via a 475m-long cable stay bridge at Grannagh.

The road is expected to cater to nearly 14,000 vehicles daily and reduce traffic through Waterford city by 30%.
