Warrenpoint Harbour Chief Call fors Funding for Relief Road

Warrenpoint Harbour Chief Call fors Funding for Relief Road

#WarrenpointHarbour – The Belfast Telegraph writes that the boss of Warrenpoint Harbour, Peter Conway has called for the construction of a relief road between the A1 and the Warrenpoint dual carriageway.

Currently all traffic going to and from the port wishing to get to the A1 has to travel through the already busy city centre of Newry.

The Harbour chief executive was speaking as it hosted the British Port Association's (BPA) annual conference, which attracted delegates from all over the UK and Ireland. Mr Conway has been lobbying for the construction of the road for many years.

He said that it would be of "fantastic benefit to the port" and would tackle their biggest problem of traffic bottle-necking in Newry. The Newry Southern Relief Road would be a one-mile link between the A2 Warrenpoint dual-carriageway and the A1 between Belfast and Dublin.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
