Re: Re: Macken St Bridge – Santiago Calatrava
I have been pouring over google maps trying to figure an easy way to make it work. It just doesn’t.
How do they expect this bridge to remove anything but a token amount of traffic from the city.
Matt Talbot bridge is one of the cities notorious traffic black spots. You have the north quays east bound, Gardiner St, Amiens St, Abbey St and the North quays west bound all feeding onto one bridge.
The traffic also has to cross on this bridge meaning trucks and buses from the port constantly block the bridge for traffic heading over matt talbot towards ringsend.
This bridge should be filtering traffic coming from the port tunnel and port away from matt talbot and also relieving Amiens and Gardiner St of some traffic.
