FP McCann has been appointed as contractors for the Blackhead Coastal Path
Project: Blackhead Coastal Path
Location: Blackhead Path lies directly north of Whitehead, Co. Antrim
Client: Mid & East Antrim Borough Council
Blackhead Path is used by the local communities of Whitehead, Carrickfergus, Larne and Belfast, in addition to tourists visiting these areas.

In addition, rock falls have damaged handrailing and the path network around the cliff.
Works to make the path safe for public access will include:
Concrete promenade repair
Gravel path repair
Widening paths and resurfacing
Installation of erosion protection
Installation of rock armour and gabion baskets
Drainage system repair and new installations
Repair to existing footbridges
