Cochrane welcomes new link from the Greenway to the Slipway

East Belfast Alliance MLA Judith Cochrane today welcomed the announcement from Sustrans on the proposed link to connect the Titanic Quarter with Ballymacarrett and the exciting Comber Greenway development in East Belfast.

Sustrans is proposing to re-open a former access route to Belfast’s Titantic Quarter as part of works to link the existing Comber Greenway and the community of Ballymacarrett into the revamped docks, so that people can make their local journeys by foot and bike, further promoting environmentally sustainable transport options.

It is anticipated that the new direct link between Ballymacarrett and Titantic Quarter will be established through the newly re­opened Frazer Street, over the blue pedestrian bridge across the Sydenham By­Pass, into Titanic Quarter. In the opposite direction the proposals would see the route follow Island Street across Dee Street with a new pedestrian crossing linking with the Comber Greenway to the Holywood Arches and on to the countryside out to Comber.

Judith Cochrane MLA said: “This announcement from Sustrans represents a great opportunity, not only to develop and enhance transport links across East Belfast, but also for the wider community to share in an exciting era of renewal for the Titanic Quarter and benefit from the enhanced opportunities that are likely to unfold throughout this year and beyond.”
