See J3373 : Bruce Street, Belfast (5) (September 2011). This vacant site (officially the Little Victoria Street car park), originally intended as the site of an inner ring road from the Ormeau Road to Sandy Row, remains in use as a car park. The current thinking seems to be that such a road is still necessary but on a lesser scale: “TransportNI, Eastern Division has been developing proposals for road improvements along the south section of the City Centre Ring. This scheme will be much reduced in scale from that proposed in the Belfast Metropolitan Transport Plan (BMTP). It will focus on the needs of public transport, pedestrians and cyclists, as well as general traffic, and take cognisance of potential redevelopment opportunities. An acceptable road ‘footprint’ would identify a number of viable and attractive sites for redevelopment to the south of the office district, between Sandy Row and Cromac St, and help to remove the blight that this area has suffered for many years.”
The original proposal would have completely severed Gt Victoria Street making the inner section a normal busy commercial street and the outer (much as it is now) semi-derelict.
