Wexford Bridge

Features

Wexford Bridge is a modern road bridge that crosses the River Slaney in Wexford town.

The bridge may an ideal filming location for scenes that are set on a modern bridge in an urban location. The bridge is made of steel girders and composite concrete slabs. It has a sleek and sweeping design. The bridge has footpaths on both sides, allowing filmmakers to set scenes with the river or Wexford town as a backdrop.

On the south side, the bridge meets the R730 on the busy Wexford quay. On the north side, the area is much less built up and there is a carpark and open area for walkers. The bridge is part of the R741 road.

The bridge was built in 1997, and replaced an earlier bridge from the 1960s. The lamp posts along the bridge are often decorated with bunting and county flags.
