The eagerly anticipated new foot and cycle bridge connecting Lagan Towpath to Annadale Embankment at Stranmillis in Belfast has opened.
The 83-metre bridge is one of the key elements of the £5.2 million Lagan Gateway project. The scheme has already seen the existing Stranmillis Weir refurbished and a new navigation lock installed, giving boats better access to other parts of the river. Belfast City Council is investing £2.15 million in the project through its Belfast Investment Fund, while other partners include Ulster Garden Villages, the Department for Communities, the Department for Infrastructure and Lagan Navigation Trust.
McAdam, as civil and structural designers are thrilled to see the realisation of our designs on site and operational and hope that this helps connect the local communities to the pathways and nature along the Lagan River.
