Portadown Linkages update - Public Realm

Project Start Date: 13th February 2017

Project Completion Date: Mid-Autumn 2017

Project Funders: Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council and the Department for Communities 


The Portadown Linkages Project aims to improve the linkages and connections surrounding Portadown town centre, including the People’s Park, Portadown train station, ASDA, the Meadows Shopping Centre, the Old Town Quay river access scheme and the town centre.


FP McCann has been appointed as the main contractor for the project. We have extensive experience in successfully completing public realm work of this size and scale throughout Northern Ireland. Our most recent public realm projects include Magherafelt, Cookstown, Newtownards, Comber, Donaghadee, Bangor and Holywood. 
Progress to date
Investigative works have been completed across the seven areas.

The work has been completed on Craigwell Avenue ahead of schedule, and works are continuing on Castle Street, Woodouse Street, West Street, Meadow Lane and Carrickblacker Road Junction.

Upcoming works
Obins Street and Park Road are due to commence after the July holidays. 
This scheme is a major civil engineering project with significant quantities of material transported in and out of the seven separate locations across Portadown. We will endeavor to complete the works as efficiently as possible and minimise any disturbance caused to you as a resident, business or customer. During work:
  • All areas will remain open for business throughout.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained to all businesses and properties.
  • Some parking bays may be closed to facilitate construction, however this will be a temporary measure and any impacts will be kept to a minimum.
  • It is anticipated that works will be complete by mid-Autumn 2017.
We are confident that you will see a significant improvement to the current streetscape that will ultimately deliver a positive impact on the linkages and town as a whole and we thank you for your patience and co-operation during this construction phase.
