Case Study: Connswater Community Greenway

The Connswater Community Greenway is a proposal for an inspirational living landmark in East Belfast, creating a green corridor alongside the Connswater, Knock and Loop rivers, from the Castlereagh Hills to Belfast Lough.  It will provide a network of open spaces and a continuous, uninterrupted pathway.  Once complete it will be possible for residents and visitors to walk, run or cycle between the hills and Lough.

ChandlerKBS has been appointed to undertake the cost management, as part of an integrated consultant team comprising Arup, The Paul Hogarth Company and ChandlerKBS.

The greenway and associated East Belfast Flood Alleviation Scheme will provide;

  • cleaner rivers
  • new bridges
  • 19kms of cycle and walkways
  • improved and connected green and open spaces
  • a public square
  • heritage trails
  • 9km linear park
  • increased river capacity, attenuation and flood protection.
