Online information hub launched for planned Salmon Weir Pedestrian Bridge

Galway City Council has launched a new online portal for people to learn more about the planned Salmon Weir Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge.

The city council submitted plans for a new pedestrian bridge across the Corrib on the Newtownsmith side of the Salmon Weir bridge earlier this month.

The project has already secured €3.5 million in funding from the government, which has been allocated under the Designated Urban Centres grant scheme.

Projects like this are normally accompanied by public information sessions, which would obviously take place in a public setting.

However due to the COVID-19 crisis, and the need to maintain social distancing, the design team for the project have developed a ‘virtual information room’ where anyone can look up information on the pedestrian bridge.

The virtual walk through of the project includes project documentation, live models and virtual fly throughs.

The site for this virtual information session went live today, and can be accessed at virtualengage.arup.com/salmon-weir.
