Connect2 bridge be named “Jubilee Bridge”

BALLYMONEY Borough Council has agree that the Connect2 bridge be named the “Jubilee Bridge”.

During a recent Leisure and Amenities Committee meeting, the report explained: ‘Cllr Ian Stevenson referred to the official opening of the Ballymoney Connect2 Bridge which is due to take place in November and advised that he would like Council to make formal representations to DRD and Translink to have the bridge named.

‘Given that this was the year of the Queen’s Jubilee he suggested the name “Jubilee Bridge” and that the assistance of Lord Lieutenant for Council Antrim also be sought.’

It was proposed by Cllr Stevenson seconded by Alderman Bill Kennedy and agreed that Council agree that the Connect2 bridge be named “Jubilee Bridge” and that it make formal representations to both the DRD Minister and Translink and elicit the support of the Lord Lieutenant for County Antrim in the matter.
