If you’re passing through Dublin’s dock district, you’ll probably have the opportunity to admire the Spencer Dock Bridge, an ultra-modern bridge spanning the Royal Dublin Canal. The bridge is round and allows the Luas (Dublin’s tramway), vehicles and pedestrians to cross the canal. A rather atypical bridge, whose look should appeal to you!
Although less famous than the Ha’Penny Bridge or the James Joyce Bridge, the Spencer Dock Bridge is one of the brand new constructions that are the pride of Dubliners. It is a practical link between the two banks of the canal for the dock area, saving precious minutes for public transport and other users wishing to reach the other side of Dublin.
For walkers, the bridge is an opportunity to admire the Royal Canal, the Liffey River and the new modern buildings in the area. Finally, architecture enthusiasts will be able to admire the bridge’s rather unusual design.
