Marlborough Street Bridge Proposal

Dublin City Council is planning to build a new bridge over the River Liffey in Dublin City Centre, just downstream of O’Connell Bridge. The bridge, which forms part of the Transport 21 Plan, will carry buses and the LUAS at this critical location across the Liffey. It will have cycleways and generous footpaths that will open Marlborough Street and Hawkins Street to greater footfall, prospective development and create a new north-south link from Abbey Street to Pearse Street.

Plans and particulars of the proposed project will be on display at the offices of Dublin City Council, The Atrium, Block 4, Civic Offices, Wood Quay Dublin 8 Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 4.30pm for a period of two weeks from Thursday 18th September until Wednesday 1st October 2008. An information evening will held at the same location on Thursday 18th September 2008 between 4pm and 8pm. Staff from Dublin City Council and its consultants will be in attendance at this time to answer queries from the public.

The bridge will have an elegant contemporary design. It will be a slender, single span, smooth concrete structure, with the underside of the bridge being designed to be as high above the water as possible so that river traffic is not impeded. An image of the proposed development is available from the Press Office Tel: 01 2222170.

Construction is due to commence in late 2009. The project is funded under the Transport 21 programme and the initial cost estimate is €15M which includes additional works required to the roadways on either side of the bridge.
