The Millennium Bridge is one of the finest additions to the city landscape in recent times and is certain to become as loved as the neighbouring Ha'penny Bridge. The winner of a design competition with 153 entries, its designers describe the parabolic arch as "simple, lightweight, transparent and structurally daring". The pedestrian bridge is wheelchair accessible and should be crossed at night so that the subtle and beautiful lighting can be appreciated. The span was actually constructed fifty miles from Dublin - in Carlow - and was the single largest object to have ever been transported over land in Ireland. It only took 25 minutes to lift the structure into place - a fitting millennial tribute to twentieth-century design and technology.
