Gibson wins £1.2M contract to build Belfast Harbour walkway

Northern Ireland civils firm Gibson constructing the 1.2km walkway to connect the new £250M City Quays development to the city.

Gibson has been chosen to build a new walkway at Belfast Harbour as part of the multi-million pound development of the area. Work on the project has already started and the walkway will open in June.

Worth £1.2M, the work will see the walkway open up the waterfront area of Donegal Quay and then form part of the link to the Waterfront Hall and beyond to the Stranmillis Embankment along the river Lagan.

Gibson chief executive Dennis Davidson said: “This project will become a popular feature in Belfast and we’re very pleased that our work will leave a lasting legacy for the city.”

Gibson, Belfast Harbour

Belfast Harbour chief executive Roy Adair and Gibson chief executive Dennis Davidson mark the start of work on a new £1.2m 1.2km long waterfront walkway linking the Harbour’s City Quays development to Belfast city centre.

It’s part of the 0.8ha City Quays scheme, which will be predominately office accommodation with some residential, retail development and a hotel.

Belfast Harbour chief executive Roy Adair added: “As part of the project we want to finish the task of opening up Belfast’s waterfront to the public and create a seamless link to the city’s historic maritime district.  

“The new walkway will support pedestrian access to City Quays and shrink the perceived distance between the Harbour and city centre, but we also believe it will become an attractive new space for visitors and locals to enjoy.”
