Connswater Community Greenway Construction update for the year ahead…

2016 is set to be another very exciting year for Connswater Community Greenway with construction moving full steam ahead.
In 2015, Farrans Construction (our contractor) commenced Phase 2 construction across east Belfast making excellent progress. This year construction currently focuses over 13 sites, with the completion of the 16km Greenway estimated for the end of 2016. Once complete, you will be able to walk and cycle through east Belfast avoiding busy roads and traffic.

Cregagh Glen works due to commence resulting in temporary closure

In just under two weeks we will be starting improvement works on the Cregagh Glen as part of the construction of the Connswater Community Greenway.

Unfortunately, due to these improvement works on paths and bridges, walkways will be closed from week beginning Monday 1 February 2016 for approx. 7 weeks. Following these closures works may be ongoing in the area with pedestrian diversions in place.

Last year we asked you to send in your pictures of the Connswater Community Greenway for our 2016 Calendar competition in association with Connswater Shopping Centre and Retail Park, and we were so pleased with the response!

On Friday 15th January we launched the Connswater Community Greenway Calendar 2016 at Connswater Shopping Centre with the winners of the 2016 Calendar Competition - as voted by you!
