Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has welcomed the opportunity for the Narrow Water bridge to move to stage II of the Special European Union Project Board funding programme. After attending a meeting of interested parties including Louth County Council, Warrenpoint, Burren and Rostrevor Chamber of Commerce and well as Kilkeel Chamber of Commerce Ms. Ruane stated, “I welcome the fact that the SEUPB have allowed the Narrow Water Bridge to move to the next stage in terms of accessing funding so it is important that we continue the campaign to see it completed.” “The project promoter, Louth County Council, will now be required to present a robust business case as part of this process which will be subject to an independent economic appraisal. It is important that this business case is inclusive of the needs of both sides of the border so I will be working closely with my colleagues from Louth so that it is as comprehensive as possible.” Ruane added, “While I realise that there are other worthwhile projects vying for similar funding I believe that this bridge can be the economic catalyst to increase the business and tourist potential for the entire South Down and North Louth region so it is important we succeed in having it built before the Interreg Funding finishes.”
