Replacing the old footbridge, it improves the links between Belfast City Centre to the Queens Quay Development and the Titanic Quarter.

The new footbridge consists of a cantilevered deck, built from structural steel enveloped in aluminium cladding. Denso Tape was used to protect anchoring bolt threads , with Denso Void Filler used to fill the anchor head protective caps on the rear tension support frame.

Denso Void Filler is based on a microcrystalline petrolatum containing corrosion inhibitors and moisture repellents. It forms a permanently flexible medium for the encapsulation and protection of bearings, tendons, stay cables, among many other applications. It has been used on a variety of major civil engineering projects, including both Severn Bridges.
