New Lock for the Lagan

The Lisburn Star reports that work is underway on a new footbridge and lock on the River Lagan, which, according to the paper “is part of a larger programme of work to open up the Lagan Navigation, linking in with other reinvigorated waterway systems throughout Ireland and opening up the waterway, which first opened in 1763, to Lisburn and eventually Lough Neagh.”

I wonder how they plan to deal with the motorway? Mind you, as Jeffrey Donaldson is a patron of the Lagan Navigation Trust, perhaps this is where part of the DUP’s £1bn is going.
