DUBLIN PORT HAS revealed plans for a new bridge across the river Liffey for lorries and a potential future Luas line. The proposed bridge is part of Dublin Port Company’s plan to redevelop the south port area, known as the Poolbeg Peninsula, which contains nearly one-fifth of the Dublin Port estate. The plans are known as the 3FM Project. Under the plans, Dublin Port Company will construct a new 2.2km Southern Port Access Route (SPAR) and with a 190m bridge across the Liffey adjacent to the existing Tom Clarke Bridge and running parallel to the East Link Toll Road. A 45m section of the bridge would be capable of lifting upwards. It is envisaged that HGVs and utility vehicles will be taken off other public roads and onto SPAR, and that pedestrians, cyclists and other public transport users will “benefit from a safer, less congested route for active travel across the city".
