Ballymoney Foot and Cycle Bridge Opening

07 November 2012
Ballymoney Footbridge

Today saw the opening of the long anticipated Ballymoney Foot and Cycle Bridge which now joins walking and cycling links between the north and south sides of Ballymoney town centre. As well as providing a much needed link between the two sides of the town which were previously separated by the railway line, the installation of the new bridge means that a potentially dangerous unmanned level-crossing can now be removed.

The construction of the new bridge and an associate Park & Ride was initiated and funded by a partnership between the Department of Regional Development, Sustrans, Ballymoney Borough Council, Translink and DRD Roads Service.

Doran Consulting was appointed by Translink and Sustrans, a national charity promoting cycling, walking and public transport use, as lead designer and project manager to design this new footbridge and cycleway over the railway station in Ballymoney, connecting a route from the Riverside Park through to the town centre.

To date, the bridge has been awarded the Construction Employers Federation (CEF) Transport Infrastructure Award.
