Ilex Urban Regeneration Company has built the Peace Bridge as part of the city’s regeneration programme. Funded by the European Union’s PEACE III programme (Shared Space initiative), the £14.66m Peace Bridge will be a living landmark and a lasting legacy.

Construction of the bridge commenced in January 2010 and was launched on June 25th 2011. The bridge measures 235 metres bank to bank and is approximately 4 metres wide, with landing points at the rear of the Guildhall and Ebrington embankment.
