Grand Canal bridge problems [updated]
Read about them here.
That’s not the Irish Grand Canal: it’s the one in Venice, the Monasterevan of the south.
There is a list of Santiago Calatrava’s bridges here, but information about his Irish bridges is lacking. Perhaps someone could send info about the James Joyce bridge and the Samuel Beckett bridge to The Full Calatrava.
Another iconic Calatrava achievement is described here [h/t Don Quijones].
Nothing in this post is intended to be insulting or degrading.
PS here’s a piece about another bridge being built in Foreign Parts, using a floating crane that even Bindon Blood Stoney might have been proud of.
