Build the Narrow Water Bridge now - Ruane

13 November, 2014 - by Caitríona Ruane

Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has said that the time is right for the construction of the Narrow Water Bridge to start.

Ms. Ruane said,

“I attended a meeting today of the Good Friday Agreement implementation committee in Warrenpoint to discuss the single issue of the Narrow Water Bridge.

“The committee fully agreed that the project should proceed as the project is shovel ready to go.

“I am now calling on both the Assembly and Dáil Éireann to reiterate their commitment to the bridge by bringing forward the necessary funding to start the construction of the bridge.

“It is proven that this bridge will open up the entire South Down and North Louth region for business and tourism.

“The construction of the bridge will also provide a much needed economic boost to the region with the creation of jobs during the construction process so it is imperative we get a start date as soon as possible.”
