‘United effort needed to secure Narrow Water bridge’ – Ruane

Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has welcomed the decision by Louth County Council to challenge the decision by the Special EU Programmes Body not to allow the Narrow Water Bridge project to proceed to the second stage.

Speaking to Newry Times, Ms. Ruane stated, “At the Council meeting Sinn Féin Councillor Jim Loughran in supporting the decision by the Council to appeal the decision by the SEUPB not to proceed with the Narrow Water Bridge project proposed a motion that if the appeal was unsuccessful that the Council would proceed to a judicial review. This motion got unanimous support from all parties on the council and this is important if we are to reverse the decision taken by the SEUPB.”

Ruane added, “I have campaigned for the construction of this bridge over the past few years and have raised it in the Assembly on several occasions urging him to proceed with the project while Interreg funding is still available. This project would open up the South Down and Louth region to inward investment and the tourist industry so it is important that we continue to fight for its reinstatement.”
