110. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the status of the options for development of the proposed Narrow Water Bridge between counties Louth and Down; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6427/21]
Following on from the Fresh Start Agreement, the "New Decade, New Approach" document indicates that the Government is ready to jointly progress consideration of options for the development of the Narrow Water bridge project at the North South Ministerial Council.
Options for the development of the Narrow Water Bridge project are under examination at present, taking into account other proposed projects in the area including the Newry Southern Relief Road. Consideration of options for a bridge has not yet reached a sufficiently advanced stage where there is a clearly defined and costed scheme.
