T4 Alexandra Road Bridge

Dublin Port Company commissioned Darmody Architecture in association with DBFL Consulting Engineers to design a bridge to span over Alexandra Road to provide uninterrupted movement of vehicles, trains, cycles and pedestrians below without detracting from distant views. The primary function of the bridge is to optimise overall operational efficiency of DPC lands in line with expected future growth and development trends. The location of the bridge in close proximity to the Port Centre Precinct public realm project completed in 2017 helped to inform the design language. A strong colour of red was selected to match the Poolbeg Lighthouse, to the sculptural concrete booms to attract attention to the contemporary structure and signify its function beyond the utilitarian.
