Ruane calls for public support for Narrow Water Bridge

Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has called upon the public to get behind the campaign in support for a new bridge in Narrow Water by signing a petition this Saturday in Warrenpoint.

Speaking to Newry Times, Ruane said, “It is important for the entire South Down and Louth regions that we secure this project so that we can create the conditions for economic regeneration. This bridge not only has the support of all parties in the South Down area but also in County Louth, where again all the parties are supportive. However, it has been refused Interreg funding by the Special EU Programmes Body. In order to show the groundswell support the all-party group have initiated a petition that will be available to be signed on Saturday 5th May in Warrenpoint from 2pm.”

“I would encourage all residents to come along and show your determination to have this bridge constructed by signing the petition and show the SEUPB the strength of feeling in the South Down area for having the area opened up for economic regeneration,” she added.
