Anger in Inishowen at lack of progress over Cockhill project in Buncrana

buncranaThere is anger in Inishowen that there seems to be significant progress on plans to build a second bridge across the Swilly in Letterkenny while construction of the Cockhill project in Buncrana has still not begun.

That's according to Councillor Jack Murray who made the comments as he called for a footbridge to be provided across the Mill River in Buncrana alongside the Cockhill Bridge.

He says there is frustration that 30 years on,the Cockhill Bridge is still at planning stage while the NRA is spending money on the Letterkenny inner relief road.

Councillor Murray says that if only on safety grounds, the Cockhill Bridge and a new footbridge in Buncrana should be the priority...............
