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.
The bridge is to carry the Luas Cross City, which is to connect the Luas Red and Green lines. However, until the Luas Cross City project is completed in 2017, the bridge is only used by Dublin Bus routes 14, 15, 27, 27x, 33x, 33d, 142 and 151, certain Bus Éireann services, taxis, bicycles and motorbikes.
The bridge was proposed by Dublin City Council to carry the southbound line of the Luas Cross City, to allow for the reorganisation of certain Dublin Bus routes, and to ease congestion by providing additional capacity for buses and taxis crossing the Liffey.

  • A fairly plain bridge over the river Liffey, but it does its job. Seating to take a rest on is a bonus whilst you relax, taking in your surroundings.  more »
  • This bridge is about 100 meters east of the O'Connell Bridge on the River Liffey. In recent years, it has come to pass the tram of the Ruas Green Line to the south. Because there is less traffic than the O'Connell Bridge, it is better to pass this bridge when you go to the east, such as the customs, bus terminal, and Connolly station on foot.
