Arthur Street, Belfast
As a response to the bombing campaign in the early 70’s many streets in central Belfast were closed to vehicular traffic. They were later pedestrianised and paved. With the benefit of hindsight the “streetscape” was not of a particularly high standard and certainly lagged behind best practice in continental Europe. The “Streets Ahead” scheme is a belated attempt to rectify matters. This is the work in progress (behind the inevitable safety fence) in Arthur Street. Continue to J3374 : Arthur Street, Belfast (2).
The "Streets Ahead" project, Belfast

A scheme described officially thus: “The Belfast: Streets Ahead project will improve the parts of Belfast City Centre the public have access to. This includes streets and squares as well as things like furniture, lighting, signs and landscaping. It can also include public art and sculpture. Work on the first phase of the project commenced in June 2007 and aims to be completed in Spring 2011.”
