Description

Synopsis

This evening lecture will give an overview of the recent Cork City Council project to repair and rehabilitate one of Corks iconic bridges; St. Patrick’s Bridge. This bridge is representative of 19th century design and construction. An objective of the restoration project is being sympathetic to these values as well as to its unique heritage and historical importance. The project is estimated to cost in the region of €1.2 million.

There is two phases to the project where the first phase involves the removal of heritage lighting for restoration by the renowned Italian lighting restoration specialists, Neri and the second phase, entails the removal of all vegetation and algae from the bridge, the cleaning and repair of all stonework and the re-pointing of missing or defective masonry joints. Proposed works also include the replacement of the footpath, carriageway resurfacing, new road markings and the upgrading of existing traffic lights, elevation and architectural lighting and directional signage.
