PLANS for Ireland's first toll bridge were approved last week, on the eve of the country's general election.
The 1R£7m (£5.5m) scheme calls for a 140m five-span twolane bridge linking East Wall Road, Dublin, with the city's South Link Road at Ringsend. It is expected to open in around 18 months' time.
Four years ago, it was suggested that tolls for lorries would be between 40p (Irish) and 111E1.20, but the bridge promoter, the Ringsend Bridge Company, says they will probably have to be higher.
