How to build a new Lunda Bridge for €4.8bn
LUNA, Northern Ireland – It is the first time since the construction of the Millennium Bridge in 1996 that a bridge of this size has been built on the island of Ireland.
The €4,800-million LUNAS LADY is one of the most iconic bridges in Europe and has been the subject of a long-running controversy.
Construction on the €1.4bn LADIES bridge started in 2008 and the work began in October last year.
It is currently being tested in the water and will be open for pedestrians to access the bridge on Monday.
The Millennium Bridge, which connects the city of Londonderry with the Isle of Man, was designed by the Danish firm Sverige Nordisk, which also designed the LADIE bridge in the 1950s.
However, the work on the LUNANS LADYS bridge has been controversial since it was first planned in the 1990s.
In 1998, the Millennium bridge was proposed to replace the LUDAS bridge on the west bank of the River Liffey, which had been built in the same period.
However, the project was scrapped in 2001 due to the financial crisis, with the construction company saying the project would be cheaper and more environmentally friendly.
A total of €1bn was paid by the Irish government for the construction, which was completed in 2006.
It cost around €8.5bn.
According to the Guinness Book of Records, it was the largest construction project in the history of the Irish Republic.
It took over six years to construct the Millennium, which has since been used by thousands of commuters each day, as well as thousands of visitors from across the world.
