Council to appeal decision not to provide funding for upgrade of Bridge Street
Louth County Council is set to appeal the decision not to include funding for the upgrade of Bridge Street under the Government’s Project Ireland 2040 programme.
It was initially planned for the street to be included in the upgrade of the Clanbrassil Street/St Nicholas Quarter, the work for which got underway last week.
However funding issues meant that despite plans for the upgrade of Bridge Street being drawn up, it will not be rejuvenated along with the rest of the town centre this year.
Louth County Council have not given up hope of this happening and have announced plans to appeal the decision not to include funding for the project.
According to LMFM News, Director of Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Frank Pentony told the Dundalk Municipal District’s monthly meeting that an appeal was being lodged in relation to the upgrade of Bridge Street and the Port Access Route in Drogheda.
He added that upgrading Bridge Street ticket all the boxes given that it could easily tie in with the upgrade works on Clanbrassil Street and Church Street which had just got underway.
