The North Lotts and Grand Canal Dock Planning Scheme 2014 proposes two new pedestrian/cyclist bridges across the River Liffey in order to improve connectivity within the SDZ area and the Docklands as a whole. Also proposed is a public transport bridge across the River Dodder at the end of Sir John Rogerson's Quay providing an important link eastwards to Poolbeg and Dublin Bay.
A Mobility and Access Study is currently being undertaken, the results of which will inform the design of these bridges.
