      If this is the bridge in question it isn’t much to look at, but if it’s anything like the lifting bridges over the Royal Canal and IFSC dock I’ll be lodging an objection.

      Edit – it is the bridge in question, and it’s probably not worth retaining:

      Sounds like it is goodbye to the Frank Sherwin of Grand Canal Bridges and what is proposed sounds attractive and will relieve quite a pinch point for traffic and cyclists from this location. That kiosk was certainly a few decades beyond its sell by date.
