DSD suspend Phase 2 and refocus on Phase 3 of Belfast Streets Ahead

The second phase of the Belfast Streets Ahead programme (North, East and West of Belfast City Hall) has been suspended by DSD Minister McCausland as work refocuses on the third phase of the Belfast Streets Ahead programme (Royal Avenue, York Street (to its junction with Frederick Street), Frederick Street, Upper North Street, North Queen Street (part), the environs around St Anne’s Cathedral, Cathedral Gardens (aka Buoys Park) and Library Square (Union Street, Little Donegall Street and Library Street)).

Phase three is intended to complement the works completed during the Belfast Streets Ahead Phase One project and will link to the University of Ulster’s plans for their campus at York Street.

The public realm enhancements to be taken forward within phase three will "deliver high quality streetscapes and open space, and will include improvements to surfacing, lighting, landscaping, street furniture and public artwork".

Work is currently under way to appoint a design team to take forward the development of design proposals for the scheme. It is anticipated that the team will be in place towards the end of 2013.
