Clarke – Narrow Water Bridge will help boost local tourism

Alliance South Down representative Cllr Patrick Clarke has welcomed the releasing of funding by the Finance Minister which paves the way for the construction of the Narrow Water Bridge over Carlingford Lough.

Cllr Patrick Clarke said: “The Narrow Water Bridge project will bring a much needed tourism and economic boost the area. Linking County Down with County Louth, the project will encourage greater travel between the two and increase opportunities for trade.

“The North-South dynamic of this project shows how much our society and politics has progressed in recent years and I would like to pay tribute to those involved in this project.

“This project has faced many years of delays, so I hope that work will be able to commence as quickly as possible.

“It could also lead to a boost for the construction sector which has faced a difficult number of years.”
