Name the Bridge

AND the winner of the public vote is Sam Thompson with 44% of the vote, Avalon got 2nd place with 29%.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to put in a submission and name the bridge in Victoria Park. It was very important to the Connswater Community Greenway that the name was completely chosen by the public. 

Anne McMurray, Chair of the Name the Bridge Panel said
“The panel had a really tough decision in shortlisting five names that were appropriate and relevant to the site of the new bridge. The panel has been overwhelmed by the volume of interest in this campaign from the public. We would like to thank everyone for taking part, both in submitting name entries and in voting. We are pleased to announce that as a result of the votes cast by the public that the proposed name is the Sam Thompson Bridge.”
