The Rosie Hackett Bridge is a road bridge in Dublin in Ireland, which opened on 20 May 2014. Spanning the River Liffey and joining Marlborough Street to Hawkins Street, it is intended solely for use by public transport, taxis, cyclists and pedestrians. It is 26 metres wide and 48 metres long, and is designed to be a slender, single span, smooth concrete structure, with the underside of the bridge designed to be as high above the water as possible so that river traffic is not impeded. It is planned to carry the Luas Cross City line, which is to connect the Luas Red and Green lines. It was budgeted at €15 million, and named for trade unionist Rosie Hackett.UseThe bridge is to carry the Luas Cross City, which is to connect the Luas Red and Green lines.
