Construction of Luas bridge in IFSC to begin


Construction of a new bridge at Spencer Dock, which will allow the Luas Red Line to be extended from Connolly Station to the Point, will begin in the new year. The Spencer Dock bridge is the principal piece of infrastructure necessary for the line extension, which will bring the Luas through the heart of the IFSC with stops at George’s Dock, Mayor Square, Spencer Dock and the Point. It will also carry two traffic lanes as well as a pair of cycle tracks. The bridge, designed by London-based architects Future Systems and Arup Engineers, will be a “landmark structure”, the Railway Procurement Agency (RPA) said.
