NSMC Meeting in Transport: Roads and transport issues

Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy reported back to the Assembly on a recent meeting of the North South Ministerial Council (NSMC), on 16 October 2012.

As he began the statement, the minister realised that it included an incorrect date for the meeting.

"It was sometime in September. It was really good," he joked.

The meeting discussed the All-Island Freight Forum, the A5 and A8 road developments and EU matters relating to transport.

The minister was asked for his opinion on the proposed Narrow Water bridge joining counties Down and Louth.

Mr Kennedy identified some potential difficulties around the bridge, including navigation on the river and possible traffic build-up on the roads leading to the bridge.
