Environmental improvements at Bloomfield Walkway
We will begin delivering environmental improvements at Bloomfield Walkway in east Belfast on 10 April 2019.
The stretch of walkway – which runs from Beersbridge Road onto Upper Newtownards Road at the Holywood Arches – is owned by the Department for Infrastructure who have provided funding for the scheme, which we will deliver.
Work is due to start at the site on 10 April and it will not be accessible by the public while the walkway benefits from:
- new planting and landscaping
- street furniture
- enhanced lighting
- upgrading and resurfacing of cycle and pedestrian paths and
- improved accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists.
Cyclists will be diverted through Ravenscroft Avenue and the Beersbridge Road, and we will display signage on this route. Ravenscroft car park will close during the development.
We will display clear signage at the site and along the diversion route and update this webpage regularly as we progress through the project. We expect to complete these works by mid-summer.
The walkway is a popular route for pedestrians and cyclists and has already benefited from investment via our Local Investment Fund with the addition of a play park and multi-use games area.
The aim of these works is to create a welcoming, safe and attractive linear park for the local community to enjoy. We also want to improve accessibility for cyclists and walkers.
The project is part of wider improvement plans for the east of the city which will regenerate key stretches of the Greenway down to Titanic railway halt, to improve open spaces and the travel infrastructure.
We are also working with the Department for Infrastructure, Urban Villages and Eastside Partnership on plans for a greenway and cycling improvement scheme for Ballymacarrett Walkway and Island Street, which links the Holywood Arches and Titanic railway halt.
