Waterford north quays

    What do people think of the plans for the redevelopment of Waterford's north quays? I've seen a picture in the irish times of the winning design and it looks really good; though the coverage was still pretty bad for something as big as this.

    Anyway I'm sure the local papers will have it all in a few days.

    Here is the OPW site for the WATERFORD NORTH QUAYS

    I think that thisis good, if a long time overdue.

    Is that for a new hotel or restaurant??

    At last! Now they've chosen a company to design the thing it'll only take 20 years to complete....Its been an age since the plans were first announced and I was starting to view the North Quay development like the 2nd river crossing. Promises, promises!

    The whole thing is meant to be about a Km long, and it'll certainly bring much needed life the Ferrybank. I like the
    east bridge idea but won't it have to lift?

    yeah.....the plans were on display in the WIT....and a lot of them are very impressive...

    (one has a second bridge connecting from a round-about at the tower hotel across to the north side)

    hopefully money isnt a factor

    You'd have to assume that since Waterford was shafted for so long due to the lack of a senior minister in favour of other places, now that we have one, things will go according to plan.

    In any case I think it will go ahead since it's been going smoothly so far and there is a lot of hooha about it, that the second crossing never got. Speaking of which it looks like even the second river crossing might happen in the near future, though with all these cuts...
