Titanic Quarter Eastern Access Road

J&S McKee Ltd were proud to be part of this project with Breedon Group in this iconic part of Belfast. This is one of a series of joint projects by Titanic Quarter Ltd and Belfast Harbour who have invested £3M into encouraging active and sustainable travel and connectivity.

This project saw the extension to Hamilton Road connecting Queens Road and Sydenham Road in the Titanic Quarter to allow access to this area for further development and also the addition of new footpaths and cycle lanes to improve connectivity to Belfast city centre and the entire Titanic Quarter.

J&S McKee Ltds package of works included:

Site clearance

Obstruction removal

Bulk earthworks
