Construction continues across East Belfast and another section of the Greenway path is set in place...

Construction continues on the Connswater Community Greenway with earthworks, drainage and concreting taking place at the Holywood Arches Section of the Connswater Community Greenway.

Unfortunately, some of the pedestrian pathways at the Holywood Arches section have been closed off for the duration of the works here. This is to facilate the construction of the C.S. Lewis Civic Square. Our contractor, Farrans Construction has put diversions in place until the construction is complete in this area (estimated late 2015). Not far from here along the ‘Black Path’ (Sydenham Bypass to Mersey Street, section D4 & D5) the contractor continues to build platforms in preparation for piling works here and this section will remain closed until late 2016. Diversions have also been set in place to facilitate pedestrians for the duration of the works here. In Dixon Park (C5) Farrans continue with earthworks and drainage, getting ready for works on bridges and concrete.

(New pathway which will connect Orangefield Park to Clarawood, Laburnum and Braniel)

Finally, in the Orangefield Park to Knock Dual Carriageway section (C7) Farrans continue to install new fencing in private properties and have also successfully completed a section of the new Connswater Community Greenway pathway continuing from our existing pathway in Orangefield Park. 

We will be holding our next *Stakeholder Forum on Friday 26th June at Connswater Community Centre from 1pm - 3pm. If you wish to come along please RSVP by midnight on Monday 22nd June. This will also be Sean's last ever Stakeholder Forum so might be a chance to bid him farewell as he returns to the Civil Service.
*If you haven’t attended a Stakeholder Forum before it’s a public information session where we highlight the Connswater Community Greenway progress to date, provide answers to any questions you may have and address any issues you may want to raise in relation to the project. A light lunch will be provided.
