Time for commitment to Narrow Water Bridge

12 November, 2013 - by Caitríona Ruane


Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has called on the Taoiseach to commit funds to the Narrow Water Bridge Project.

 Ms. Ruane stated,

 “This project has the potential to be an economic catalyst for the entire South Down and North Louth region.  We need to secure this extra funding to see it over the finish line.

 “I am concerned that due to delays in committing to the funding by the Irish Government that the entire project is being put in jeopardy.

 “There is a commitment of funding from SEUPB, the Assembly, Louth and Newry Councils. It is crucial we get a clear funding commitment from the Irish Government to begin the construction of the bridge.

 “The project has cross party and cross border support and the Taoiseach has previously endorsed this project as a major cross border project so he needs to back up these words with actions.

 “Sinn Féin will continue to pursue funding to see this bridge completed so we can open up the region to economic regeneration through tourism and new business.”
