  • Removal of surfacing and kerbs and replacement with high quality natural stone kerbs and paving;
  • Street Tree and herbaceous planting;
  • Supply and installation of new street furniture, signage & street lighting;
  • Installations of new puffin crossings




Welcoming the development, the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Joan Baird OBE said:

“I’m delighted to see progress continue on this hugely important scheme, and the announcement of the contractor marks a significant milestone. The Open Golf Championship in 2019 is set to be the biggest sporting event ever held in Northern Ireland, and the entire island. It will expose Portrush to a huge worldwide television audience. This public realm scheme ensures the town can capitalise on this potential, and create a lasting legacy for the future”.

“The project will complement the other recent investments, which include the Station Square public realm scheme, West Bay Promenade and the transformation at East Strand. I look forward to seeing how this project will further transform Northern Ireland’s most visited seaside resort.”

Pauline Campbell, Director of the North West Development Office at the Department for Communities said: 

“This public realm scheme is one of the key projects being taken forward as part of the wider Portrush Regeneration Programme, to include a new train station and a series of urban development grants to the private sector. This £6 million investment by the Department will help transform Portrush as the town prepares to play host to the Open in 2019." 

"The Department’s significant contribution will help to ensure that Portrush is well positioned to maximise the economic return that the tournament will present”
