Munster welcomes confirmation by Minister Shane Ross that he will meet with Minister Chris Hazzard in relation to cross-border infrastructure.
Today in the Dáil Sinn Féin Spokesperson for Transport Imelda Munster TD welcomed a commitment from Minister for Transport Shane Ross to meet with Minister for Infrastructure in the North, Chris Hazzard MLA.
“This is an important development in light of the challenges that Brexit will present on all parts of this Island. Their exist has brought about a number of serious cross border issues that need a united approach, including infrastructure, the possibility of a hard border and problems posed if access is constricted. It’ll create problems for all sectors of the transport industry, ports, airports, road and rail throughout the island if these matters are not addressed, north and south.
“We also need reassurance that a hard border will never return to this country. It’s hugely important that government Ministers are working to ensure that the people of Ireland’s voices are heard in negotiations between Britain and Europe. Cross-border Ministerial cooperation is a huge part of this process.“
