Yeah, It's the same bridge.
There's an old thread on it at
http://www.archiseek.com/content/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1615

Yesterday (I think) it got planning permission. So work should now begin later this year and take "about nine months" to complete. Total cost €3.5m......

The Calatrava bridge is the Macken Street bridge further down which will cater for traffic. Its the distinctive 'harp-like' bridge you may have seen. As far as I know that is still undergoing an EIS.

There was also talk of pedestrian bridge between Malborough St and Hawkins St... does someone have a bridge fetish...

The controversy about the possibility of hordes of kids climbing over the arches of the Joyce Calatrava bridge seems to have died down. I was up there on Sunday and no sign of barbed wire or the like. Not even a coat of slippery paint ( I touched it to check!) Apparently DCC have installed one fixed camera to keep an eye on things!
