Improvements to the walkway
Environmental improvement works are almost complete at Bloomfield Walkway in east Belfast.
The walkway is benefiting from:
- planting and landscaping
- street furniture
- enhanced lighting
- upgrading and resurfacing of cycle and pedestrian paths
- improved accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists
The Department for Infrastructure owns the stretch of walkway, which runs from Beersbridge Road onto Upper Newtownards Road at the Holywood Arches. They are funding the scheme, which we are delivering.
The walkway is a popular route for pedestrians and cyclists and has already benefited from investment through our Local Investment Fund with 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, to support this we are currently working with the local community to develop a programme of animation for the walkway. 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 stretches of the greenway to Titanic railway halt, to improve open spaces and the travel infrastructure.
