Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has handed in a petition to Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy calling on him to grant the bridge order on the Narrow Water Bridge as soon as possible . Speaking to Newry Times, Ruane said, “Myself and Independent MLA John McCallister handed in a petition as part of the consultation on the bridge order for the Narrow Water Bridge. “The bridge, which was recently granted the necessary finance has the potential to transform the economic fortunes of the South Down and North Louth region by creating a tourist and business gateway by connecting both regions. “If Danny Kennedy can now move quickly to grant the bridge order we also could have the beginning of the construction phase by the autumn. This would be a much-needed boost to the construction industry and reinvigorate the local economy. “I would like to thank the Warrenpoint Chamber of Commerce for their support and the people from the are who took the time to sign the petition in support of this bridge. Ruane added, “I hope the Minister Kennedy takes on board the views of the thousands of local people who supported this petition so we get this bridge built as soon as possible.”
