Proposed River Dodder bridge will not allow cars

The project is said to cost just under €16million with completion planned for 2022.

A proposed bridge over the Dodder will be for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport only - writes dublinlive.ie.

It will also prevent buses and taxis using the bridge from accessing the Ringsend village from the eastern end of the structure, according to The Times, Ireland edition.

The bridge which is scheduled to open in 2022, is said to be a key piece of infrastructure for the development of a new Poolbeg suburb.

The project is said to cost just under €16million and if the planning permission goes through construction work will begin in 2019.The suburb development would deliver around 3,000 homes for 8,000 people.

It specifies that 1,650 of the new homes will be two-bed properties, while 900 will be one-bedroom units and the remaining 450 made up by three-bedroom homes or more.

The plan for Poolbeg also incorporates three public parks, a primary school, the extension of the Luas Red Line, and includes the former Irish Glass Bottle site, which remains undeveloped after being bought for more than €400m in 2006.
