SDLP MP Margaret Ritchie has welcomed the announcement by the Minister for Regional Development today that he will publish the bridge order for consultation on the proposed bridge at Narrow Water, but urges the Minister for Finance to approve the business case and provide the remainder of the funding for the bridge.

What we are hearing about the Bridge
never seem's promising..
It's what they could be doing with
the money.

So maybe we'll have a long wait..

Surely we are not going to see
a situation where the grant
from the E.U. is lost to us.

When would we ever be in a
position to complete a project
of this magnitude, for the
minuscule amount of money
the N.I.Executive is being
asked to contribute.

It's time for common sense to
prevail, never mind the moral
aspect, given the historical lack
of investment in the area.

All the positives have been well
documented, and obvious, and
the absence of negatives lends
weight to the need for approval.

How nice it would be, in the years
to come, for those who follow us,
to look at such an iconic structure,
and thank us, the Taxpayer, for
our contribution.
