News that a new bridge will be approved for construction at Fintra in Killybegs has been welcomed.
Donegal County Council at their meeting today are expected to approve the carrying out of this construction on the R263, a vital link giving access to Kilcar, Carrick and Glencolmcille.
Thomas Pringle TD and Cllr John Campbell said the bridge is a vital link for the communities of Killybegs, Kilcar and Glen. It is also the main access to the world renown Slieve League Cliffs that Donegal County Council want to see develop into a major tourist attraction in the southwest.
“We must now ensure that the funding is secured so that this much needed improvement can begin as soon as possible,” added Deputy Pringle.
