I welcome news that North Down Borough Council and Roads Service have formally agreed future arrangements concerning upkeep of Twisel Bridge, Holywood.
The bridge is known locally as the Kissing Bridge and used by pedestrians to travel between Victoria Road and Church Road, Holywood.

After a significant amount of lobbying I am glad to see Twisel Bridge tidied up and agreement reached concerning future upkeep.
Two years ago Twisel Bridge and associated path was in a terrible state but after relentlessly raising the issue safe passage is possible, memorial stone cleaned up and formal agreement in place to ensure it doesn’t fall back into disrepair.
