In section D1, Connswater Link to Beersbridge Road, Farrans have installed a piling platform and have begun piling works in Bloomfield Industrial Estate

Further along the scheme in section C6, Beersbridge Road to Elmgrove our contractor has continued to make good progress  with the continued construction of a retaining wall and the beginning of concreting works on the CCG pathway.

In Section C7: Orangefield Park to Knock Dual Carriageway final concreting works are complete, landscaping works have begun and the area has been transformed looking more and more complete each day. Works on the Braniel are also due to begin soon.

Elsewhere, Farrans have begun works in section B2, Ladas Drive to Montgomery Road with the installation of a Readyrock Wall at the Belfast Metropolitan College. They have also begun works in section B6: Castlereagh Road to Ladas Way with the removal of fencing in private property and the installation of a haul road and site compound.

On the road sections of the Connswater Community Greenway Farrans continue to progress well at section A3, Cregagh Road and B9. Farrans are working to a planned schedule and hope to have works complete on Orby Road, before moving onto Orby Link soon. Farrans also plan to enter section A4 at Montgomery Road soon to continue the kerbing and resurfacing works for the scheme.
