Construction of the Connswater Community Greenway continues across entire project...

Progress on the Connswater Community Greenway continues with works now stretching from the top of Cregagh Road right through east Belfast to Victoria Park.

At The Holywood Arches section which includes the C.S. Lewis Civic Square paving has now been completed for the performance area with works now focusing on the wall surrounding this space. Also at this section works continue on earthworks, drainage and ducting for lighting within this space.

(Installation of a flood wall at the Sydenham Bypass to Mersey Street section (D5)  which will deliver much needed flood alleviation to the surrounding residential area).

Further along the Connswater Community Greenway at the Connswater Link to Beersbridge Road section (D1) the contractor has begun earthworks in the Avoniel Park area and is continuing with piling works in Bloomfield Industrial Estate.

Moving across to the Beersbridge Road to Elmgrove section (C6) works continue on the stone clad retaining wall which will reduce flooding in this area.  Efforts also focus on final resurfacing and fencing works at the Beersbridge Elim Church.

Elsewhere along the Greenway in section B6: Castlereagh Rd to Ladas Way works have begun to remove earth in preparation for the construction of a flood wall in the Loopland area.

Further across at section B2: Montgomery Rd to Ladas Drive there has been great progress with the completion of the Ready Rock retaining wall at the Belfast Metropolitan College. Further along the section works also focus on a Flood Wall towards the Castlereagh Police Station. 

Great progress continues at Montgomery Road (A4) and the Cregagh Road (A3) (road work sections) with continued progress on granite kerbing and surfacing. Traffic Management systems are in place for both areas with a contra-flow system on Montgomery Road and temporary traffic lights on the Cregagh Road. The contractor will cease work on the Cregagh Road in late November and return in early January due to a Christmas embargo.
