A new Liffey bridge has been announced for Dublin
The commemorative bridge will span the Liffey between the Irish National War Memorial Gardens and lands just north of UCD Boat Club in Islandbridge.
This bridge will be designed only for pedestrian and cycle and it will be a formal entrance at the Chapelizod Road side of the river.
The final bridge was designed by the firm responsible for the Spire, Ian Ritchie Architects.
With Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran, Minister of State for the OPW, said “the gardens are one of Dublin’s most culturally significant sites”. Adding the new bridge can only be positive and will enhance them for all to enjoy.
