The N5 Longford Bypass is opening today, after 16 months of construction and an investment of €26m.

The National Roads Authority says it is opening two months ahead of schedule.

The bypass consists of 2.6 kilometres of single carriageway, a bridge spanning the river Camlin and the realignment of local and regional roads.
