ROYAL CANAL GREENWAY NORTH STRAND ROAD TO SHERIFF STREET
This section is 750 metres long and links North Strand with the docklands, where it connects with the existing cycle route running along Guild Street.
The Royal Canal Phase 2 Viaduct is a critical piece of infrastructure within the Royal Canal Greenway scheme as it enables pedestrians and cyclists to travel from the North Strand Road through to the Seville Place junction unobstructed.
At the western end of the scheme, the North Strand Road side, the viaduct links to the recently installed Newcomen Footbridge, which spans over the Docklands Railway Line and the Royal Canal and serves as a pedestrian bridge running parallel to the existing Newcomen Road Bridge.
The viaduct takes pedestrians and cyclists over the Newcomen railway line coming out of Connolly Station and onto a newly constructed, landscaped, winding approach ramp. From here, pedestrians and cyclists are taken under the main northern line railway bridges and along approximately 500m of newly refurbished bank of the Royal Canal to the Seville Place junction.
