The proposal for the new pedestrian and bicycle bridge is to provide a single span bridge linking the Irish National War Memorial Gardens (NWMG) and the existing cycle lane and North bank walking route along the Chapelizod road. The pedestrian bridge develops on the geometry which Sir Edwin Lutyens had used in the design of the Great Stone throughout the numerous war cemeteries in France and elsewhere. The geometry of the circle is most clearly explored and manifest in the setting at Lambay Castle and gardens on Lambay Island developed with Gertrude Jekyll. The proposed bridge, is formed in a continuous arc extending the existing paths along the edges of the National War Memorial Gardens leading to the north bank of the River Liffey on to a new landscaped plaza. It is intended that the bridge’s simple form / silhouette will enhance the existing setting and provide memorable addition to the existing gardens.
