The Monastery Road Bridge over the N7 in Dublin is a Bow-string Arch Bridge (or Tied Arch), comprising two parallel independent arches. It has a suspended deck and will accommodate two-way traffic, cycle lanes and footpaths. It spans over the N7 just to the west of the Red Cow Interchange and forms one of the gateways into Dublin. The steel structure was constructed off-line and rolled into place in one 4 hour move. A specially imported heavy lift mobile jacking unit was used to shift the giant structure from one side of the N7 to the other during the night of 7th October 2008.
