The part of the development affecting the centre of Newtownards seems to be sometime in the future J4873 : Window, Newtownards. This view, from beside Scrabo Tower, shows work underway between the Portaferry Road roundabout and the Castlebawn roundabout (lower right). Newtownards bus depot is on the left of the Portaferry Road roundabout.
The Castlebawn development, Newtownards

A large-scale, new retail development between the Comber and Portaferry Roads. The building of a ring road around Newtownards was preliminary. The site is visible in this elevated view J4873 : New road, Newtownards (4). The development seems unlikely, in the near future, to proceed in the form originally envisaged. In the meantime part of Newtownards lies blighted.

The Southern Relief Road (completed in 2009) joins the Belfast road to the Portaferry Road bypassing the town centre. The Castlebawn roundabout will serve the proposed Castlebawn shopping centre.
