WELCOME TO THE NARROW WATER BRIDGE COMMUNITY NETWORK
To develop, enhance and protect the natural environment and cultural heritage of the Carlingford Lough Area to achieve a level of excellence in sustainable tourism which will establish the area as the prime tourist destination on the East Coast of Ireland.
The NWBCN believes that central to achieving this goal is the building of a bridge at Narrow Water.
NARROW WATER BRIDGE
NWBCN relaunches its campaign in earnest
Bridge reflects "the views of the community".
A New Decade, A New
The NWBCN is determined that the disaster of 2013, when the bridge failed to go ahead despite approval of both governments and major funding from Brussels, will not be repeated.
The Network will engage widely with political parties North and South to ensure that building work on the bridge as approved in 2012 by Alex Atwood, then Minister responsible will commence as soon as possible.

In response to a Letter to the Editor from "The Southern Relief Road Fan" published in last weeks (January 22 edition of the Newry Reporter, the Narrow Water Bridge Community Network has written to defend the support and work being done to see the cross-border tourism link completed at Narrow Water.
The NWBCN has given a very cautious welcome to the inclusion of the Narrow Water Bridge in the 'New Decade, New Approach’ document recently published ahead of the political parties agreeing to re-enter Stormont. The language at page 52 of the document is encouragingly precise. Under the heading 'Turbocharging Infrastructure', Northern Ireland will benefit from increased funding for capital infrastructure as a result of the UK government’s proposed infrastructure revolution. This funding will enable the new Stormont Executive to invest in a range of projects which include the A5/A6 upgrade, the York Street Interchange, a new medical school for Derry and the Narrow Water Bridge.
