How to repair the bridges that built the Confederation Bridge
Bridge repair equipment will soon be available in Ireland to help people repair bridges that are already damaged.
The Republic of Ireland’s Department of Transport has started working on a national plan to repair damaged bridges and to install new ones.
The project is being coordinated by Transport for Ireland (TfI) and the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC).
The Irish Government announced the project at a cost of almost €1 billion.
The project is aimed at restoring the existing bridge system on the Derry/Donegal border.
The original bridge system was damaged when the Irish Sea collapsed.
The bridge system between the Republic of Tipperary and the Republic will be completely reconstructed, with new lanes and the extension of a crossing to be built between Derry and Dublin.
The new bridges will also be upgraded to the same standard as those in the UK and Ireland.
The UK Government has said it is working on plans to improve the quality of bridges across the UK, and is planning to make the existing bridges better.
The Irish government is aiming to build 50 new bridges to replace the existing structures.
The replacement of the Dún Laoghaire Bridge is being funded by the European Investment Bank.
