Department of Transport
Question 121: To ask the Minister for Transport if the realignment of the Ballnacarry bridge on the River Fane separating County Monaghan and County Armagh was discussed by the North South Ministerial Council or the arrangements made to improve the road at this point; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [38354/10]
The N53 Ballynacarry Bridge scheme was discussed at the Transport sectoral meeting of the North South Ministerial Council on 3 April 2009. At the Council meeting I and my Northern counterparts noted that the Ballynacarry Bridge was not included in existing road investment plans and agreed that once the necessary studies were completed consideration would then be given to the priority to be attached to this project post 2010.
