The Lagan Gateway Project involves the construction of a new boat lock and footbridge on the River Lagan and associated foot paths, picnic areas and canoe launch platforms. The project is located at the Stranmillis Weir in South Belfast.
The aim of the scheme is to provide resurgence to the river lagan and provide a regional gateway to the canal network, creating opportunities for tourism, employment, community engagement and economic growth, both locally and regionally.
It is part of a larger programme of work to open up the Lagan Navigation linking in with other reinvigorated waterway systems throughout Ireland and opening up the navigation to Lisburn and eventually Lough Neagh.
The intention is for it to act as a true gateway for water traffic travelling into and out of Northern Ireland.
