Sinn Fein launch banner in support of Narrow Water Bridge

Sinn Féin MLA’s Caitriona Ruane and Chris Hazzard have launched a banner in support of the Narrow Water Bridge.

Speaking to Newry Times, Ruane said,

“The Narrow Water Bridge is crucial to the development of both the South Down and Carlingford areas and I have campaigned for its construction to happen as soon as possible.

“Recently we had the successful Special EU Programme Body appeal to keep alive hope of European funding for the project. However the campaign to get the bridge built has not yet been won.”

“In order to highlight the campaign we have launched a banner at Narrow Water Roundabout showing the support from both Co. Down and Louth. This banner is intended to keep the campaign fresh in the minds of passing motorists and galvanise people in action in getting behind the campaign.”

She added, ‘Both myself, Chris Hazzard and Gerry Adams TD in conjunction with our MEP Martina Anderson will continue to lobby to have this bridge completed in order to bring economic prosperity to the region.”

Chris Hazzard MLA added,

“I see the construction of this bridge as a catalyst for the regeneration of the entire South Down area as there needs to be a direct link between Down and Louth not only for the potential of tourism but also for transport reasons in allowing businesses a quicker route onto the main arterial routes.”
