Environmental improvements at Ballymacarrett Walkway

Work to deliver environmental and cycling infrastructure improvements on Ballymacarrett Walkway in east Belfast began on 17 February and will continue until summer 2020.

The stretch of walkway runs from Connswater Street at CS Lewis Square to Dee Street. During this time the walkway will only be partially accessible, with diversions through Severn Street for cyclists and pedestrians. We will display clear signage at the site and update this web page as we progress through the project.

This project is being funded by the Urban Villages Initiative – a key action within the Northern Ireland Executive’s ‘Together: Building a United Community’ Strategy – as well as DfI Roads.


The aim of this work is to create a welcoming, safe and attractive linear park for the local community and to improve accessibility for cyclists and walkers. Key improvements include:

  • new planting and landscaping
  • new street furniture
  • enhanced lighting, and
  • upgrading and resurfacing of the cycle and pedestrian paths.

We’re delivering the project in partnership with the Department for Infrastructure, the Urban Villages Initiative and Eastside Partnership as part of wider improvements in the east of the city. This work includes regeneration along key stretches of the Comber Greenway from Bloomfield Walkway to the Titanic railway halt, helping to improve open spaces and the sustainable travel infrastructure.
