Narrow Water bridge funded on its own merits

24 November, 2012 - by Caitríona Ruane


Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has said that the Narrow Water Bridge was granted planning permission and funded on its merits and has the ability to transform the entire area.

 Ms. Ruane said,

 “The Narrow Water Bridge has been granted funding from the Special EU Public Body as it met all the criteria, in fact I believe it has one of the highest scores for any project brought before the SEUPB.

 “It has also had planning permission granted on both sides of the border and support from the Irish Government.

 “This bridge has the support of the overwhelming majority of people in South Down and North Louth and the potential to transform the economic fortunes of that region

 “I will continue to work with all parties and agencies to ensure this project is completed for the benefit of all communities in the area”
