Queen's Quay redevelopment proposals, Belfast
The Department for Social Development (DSD) published a “Draft Masterplan”, in mid-December 2011, showing proposals for the redevelopment of Queen’s Quay and part of the surrounding area. The proposals envisage changing the area dramatically. They include provision for residential, recreational and tourist use. At present (January 2012) it forms an undeveloped space between Donegall Quay/The Obel Tower and the Titanic Quarter. Queen’s Quay was previously the quay where coal was imported and scrap metal exported for recycling.
The final version of the Masterplan for the redevelopment of the Queen’s Quay area was published on 29 August 2013 LinkExternal link. It includes the proposed removal of the Station Street/Bridge End flyover.

The first stage of the redevelopment is the replacement of the footbridge across the weir. The application for planning permission (December 2013) reads “Z/2013/1369/F Donegal [sic] Quay Belfast Replacement of existing footbridge superstructure serving Lagan Weir, Belfast”.

The photographs submitted by me appear as a matter of geographical and historical record only. I have no connection with the DSD and have no opinions about (for or against) the proposals.
They (or any scheme which might emerge from the consultation) are likely to take many years to complete.
