Blood Stoney Bridge – Plans for Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge Over the Liffey Released by Council

Dublin City Council has released new plans for a pedestrian and cycling bridge spanning the River Liffey in the Docklands, which it is calling the Blood Stoney Bridge.

If built, it would stretch about 125 metres across the river from Sir John Rogerson’s Quay at Blood Stoney Road on the south said, to North Wall Quay at New Wapping Street on the north side.

The bridge would have a 4-metre-wide segregated cycleway, plus two 3-metre-wide footpaths, the report says. It would be able to lift up and open so boats could pass underneath.

The council plans to apply to An Bord Pleanála for permission in early 2020, subject to receiving approval for an amendment to the North Lotts and Grand Canal SDZ Planning Scheme, the council report says.

“Assuming the scheme is approved, it is anticipated that construction will start in mid-2021 and will take approximately 18 months to complete,” it says.
