I see the quay wall is being dismantled and one hopes lessons have been learned from James Joyce Bridge and the removed quay wall stones secured and not left there to be knicked.
On the article...isnt this just another case of the interminable navel gazing that greets these projects. The bridge has been decided and is now under construction. If Luas is built to its decided route then the bridge will make sense. If ABP sees fit and routes Luas down Marlborough Street in both directions then it will make even more sense (oops, am I indulging in interminable navel gazing about the route of Luas). If Luas doesn't happen then the bridge will be an expensive additional route across the river and a bit of a white elephant, but well find some use for it. Like those empty poles... don't remove them, just add more signage. Is brea liom Ath Cliath! (for the week that's in it)
