Dublin City Council has started the planning and design of the Point Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge and Tom Clarke Bridge Widening Project. This project is part of the Dublin City Council (DCC) Active Travel Network and will be funded by the National Transport Authority (NTA) and DCC.

The proposed bridge is a cycling and pedestrian bridge located directly adjacent to the west of the existing Tom Clarke Bridge in Ringsend. The bridge is approximately 150m in length, spanning from North Wall Quay to Ringsend on the southside of the River Liffey.
