There are proposals to build a fixed bridge over the Newry Ship Canal as part of the Southern Relief Road.
This is what will happen.
Any bridge MUST include an opening span otherwise yachts will not be able to access the Albert Basin in the centre of Newry.
To bring a boat through Victoria Lock and up the Newry Ship Canal to the Albert Basin in the city centre please conact Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Tourist Office via email@example.com or
0300 013 2233.
