Summary

Roughan & O’Donovan undertook a major upgrade of the approach routes to the Samuel Beckett Bridge in order to support additional flows of traffic.

Solution

The scheme involved road narrowing works to provide buffer space between traffic and the adjoining houses on the northern side of the river works.

On-street parking bays, cycle lanes, raised platforms at junctions and signalised pedestrian crossings were provided.  Footpaths were reconstructed with high quality paving, and trees were planted to enhance the street environment.  

The existing road on Guild Street was reconstructed where the old cobbled pavement had failed.

Challenge

Balancing the residential character of several streets with the introduction of significant traffic flows represented our main challenge.
