Plans For £3m Strabane Footbridge Shelved

Plans to build a £3m footbridge in Strabane have been postponed because the council could not find a contractor in time.

Meanwhile Cycle charity Sustrans has withdrawn their £650K contribution for the bridge as their agreement was that they would help fund the structure if it was built by March 2013.

The footbridge was set to span more than 70 meters across the River Mourne but Strabane District Council ran into problems when they could not secure a contractor’s tender that promised to build the bridge to a £3m budget.


The two tenders to build the bridge received by the council were in the region of £4.5m.

The remainder of the money for the bridge, £2.2m, had been agreed by the Department for Regional Development, and it is thought this money is still available.
