LAGANSIDE WALKWAY WHAT YOU MIGHT SEE IF YOU WALK FROM QUEEN’S BRIDGE TO ALBERT BRIDGE
I was on the Pottingers Quay side of the Lagan and was a bit surprised that all the bushes and trees had been removed in what someone, on Twitter, described as in a “brutal manner”.
According to local media the Department for Infrastructure has removed a number of trees along the River Lagan as part of work on the Belfast Tidal Flood Alleviation Scheme and has said that more are likely to be chopped down.
The principal aim of the Belfast Tidal Flood Alleviation Scheme is to deliver a scheme of works that will provide a long term approach to tidal flood risk management for Belfast. The study area is from Belfast Lough to Stranmillis Weir, which is the extent of tidal influence on the River Lagan.
