Cllr Gallagher said “The estimated costs to re-instate this bridge is over €600,000, this seems to be to be an astronomical amount of money for a project of this size.“I have asked the council to investigate alternative sources of funding to have this bridge re-instated, and I have received a commitment from Council that all avenues will be investigated, in the meantime I have asked that a costing be done to instate a bailey bridge, like what has been installed on the Fintown-Glenfin road.“I have been assured that this will be done, and am hopeful that this measure if accepted by Council will allow access through this route for the people of Glenties.”She added that it is unacceptable that this bridge has been down for over three years, and a solution has to be found to this situation without delay.  A BRIDGE TOO FAR FOR GLENTIES was last modified: November 27th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cllr Marie Therese GallagherGlentiesMulintaboyle Bridgelast_img
