After a successful campaign by volunteers, the Eastern Link Bridge has finally been put back on the development plan of Sligo County Council. This move has been greatly welcomed by Cranmore Co-op and its volunteers. “This is a tremendous step in the right direction. It has been a long hard road and we are glad it has come to an end, “Michelle Mc Morrow spokesperson for the Co-op stated. The spokesperson also continued to welcome the appointment of a Liaison Officer who will meet with communities to ensure consultation takes place; surrounding the Eastern Link Bridge and the approach roads.
As the Cranmore Regeneration Project is now entering a critical stage, it is vital the Liaison Officer facilitates interaction between the communities and the council, as the new Master Plan will shape the Eastern Quadrant of Sligo City for decades to come. “We are confident that through genuine consultation, real bridges can be crossed,” the spokesperson ended.
