Sinn Féin Cllr Michael Ruane has welcomed the decision by the Special European Union Programmes Body (SEUPB) to reinstate the Narrow Water Bridge project for consideration for funding. Speaking to Newry Times, Ruane stated, “This is great news for the people of Warrenpoint and the entire region of South Down. This project has so many benefits for all the people of South Down. In the short term it will help create construction jobs that are vitally needed in this area and in the long term help revive the local economy which has suffered immensely since the downturn.” He continued, “Sinn Féin has shown its overwhelming support to this project and has fought hard for the people of South Down on this issue along with our counterparts in the County Louth. In reviewing the project the SEUPB have indicated that the project can now proceed to the next stage. It is important for the development of the region in terms of tourism and economic recovery that this bridge is completed.” “I am now calling on the people of Warrenpoint and further afield to show their continued support for this project,” Ruane added.
