Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
151. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the specific options currently being considered for the Narrow Water Bridge project; the expected timeframe for a defined and costed scheme; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11804/21]
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 and the potential extension of the Newry to Carlingford Greenway.
Consideration of options for a bridge has not yet reached a sufficiently advanced stage where there is a clearly defined and costed scheme.
I and my officials will continue to liaise with Minister Mallon and her officials in the Department for Infrastructure in Northern Ireland regarding all the options.
