  • A newly refurbished walkthrough bridge that provides a scenic link between Belfast city centre and the SSE Arena.
  • The new Lagan Weir Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge was officially opened on 30 June 2015. It was still under construction when I visited the city in 2015 but this year I got the opportunity to use and photograph it. I must admit that I was impressed. Much better than the old bridge that it replaced.
  • An integral part of the city it controls the tidal flow of the River Lagan
  • Elegant modern footbridge with good photo opportunities on clear days.
  • Love this area of Belfast. The new footbridge is such a welcome addition. More of this please Belfast!
