Adams backs Narrow Water Bridge project

14 June, 2012 - by Gerry Adams TD


Sinn Féin Louth TD Gerry Adams has expressed his support for the construction of the Narrow Water Bridge linking south Down and County Louth.

An Bord Pleanála is meeting this week in the Four Seasons in Carlingford as part of its process to determine whether Narrow Water Bridge should receive planning permission.

Gerry Adams said:

“The Narrow Water Bridge makes economic and commercial sense. It would provide a vital infrastructure connection linking north and south which would assist economic, and especially tourism development in an area which desperately needs new investment for jobs and growth.

“There is widespread political and public support for the development, including from local councils and the two governments.”
