Design and construction of Rosie Hackett Bridge in Dublin, Belfast

About this event

The Rosie Hackett Bridge, completed in 2014, is the newest bridge to be constructed over the River Liffey in Dublin. The graceful structure is 26m wide and spans 47m across the river just downstream of O'Connell Bridge.

It is a single span post-tensioned in-situ concrete bridge and with a depth at mid-span of just 457mm, has one of the highest span to depth ratios in the world for a bridge of its type.

The bridge connects the north and south of the city centre with two southbound bus lanes, one southbound light rail (LUAS) track, two footpaths and two cycle tracks.
