New section on the Greenway opens to the public

Well-known east Belfast Actor, the late, James ‘Jimmy’ Ellis, famed for his roles in productions such as the BBC series Z-Cars and The Billy Plays, will add his name to a new bridge, just metres from his family home. Unveiled to the public on Wednesday 8th March 2017, this marks the opening of a further section of the Connswater Community Greenway linking C.S. Lewis Square, Mersey Street and Victoria Park.

New bridge names unveiled

Earlier this year Connswater Community Greenway, in association with Belfast City Council, launched a campaign to name the three bridges installed on the Greenway section from Beersbridge Road to Grand Parade. The public put forward their suggestions which then went to a public vote.

On Monday 13th February, families and local stakeholders met to unveil the bridge names and celebrate the inspirational local people who will now be remembered for generations to come.
