Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has expressed disappointment that a fixed bridge, not a lifting one, has been chosen for the Southern Relief Road.
The Newry & Armagh MLA said:
“I’m extremely disappointed to hear that the Department for Infrastructure has decided on a fixed bridge for Newry Southern Relief Road.”
“This is an issue I repeatedly raised in Stormont. Our waterways are an excellent resource, with a lot of potential.
“This decision will come as a disappointment to many in the community.”
