Ballymacarrett Walkway improvement work commences

Work to deliver environmental and cycling infrastructure improvements on Ballymacarrett Walkway begins on Monday 17th February and will continue until Summer 2020.

To limit disruption to users throughout the construction period the intention is to close off the Walkway in phases.  During this time the Walkway will only be partially accessible, with diversions through Severn Street for cyclists and pedestrians (routes will made clear via signage displayed at the site throughout the build period).

Growing Greenways

A plan exploring the potential for a wider network of Greenways across east Belfast was launched today, 11th October, at Belfast City Hall. Building on the success of the east Belfast regeneration project Connswater Community Greenway, one of only three projects in the UK to be awarded ‘Living Landmark’ status, the EastSide Greenways concept plan aims to influence and explore the potential for a wider network of Greenways linking into a city-wide and regional network.
