The West-Link Toll Bridge was conceived and constructed as a convenience for the motorist and commercial road user, as an aid to economic activity in Dublin and beyond, and a profitable enterprise for National Toll Roads.
It opened in 1990 as part of the Western Parkway, a stretch of motorway just over 12 kilometres long between Tallaght and Blanchardstown. It forms part of a 3.2 kilometre tolled section and was Ireland’s first tolled motorway. The West-Link is in fact two independent bridges, the first carrying northbound traffic and the second (built in 2003) carrying southbound and each comprising three lanes.
