Plans Resurrected To Build Bridge Over The Liffey

The public spending minister has confirmed 90 year old plans to build a bridge over the Liffey are back on the table.

Paschal Donohoe has told the Irish Times the Commissioner of Public Works is looking into the feasibility of a pedestrian and cycling-only link between the Phoenix Park and War Memorial Gardens.

1930s architect, Edward Lutyens, had envisaged a three-arch bridge near where a number of rowing clubs are now based.

The project has repeatedly failed to get off the ground because of a lack of funding.

In 2015, there was a proposal to build either one of two schemes; the first was a series of stepping stones via a bridge, pedestrian crossing, staircase, ramp or funicular.

The second suggestion was to build a single bridge which would take people from the gardens to beneath Military Road in the park.

Minister Donohoe says the plans are subject to funding being in place for the project.
