TRAIL INFORMATION

The Comber Greenway is a 7 mile traffic free section of the National Cycle Network developed by Sustrans along the old Belfast to Comber railway line. The path was completed in November 2008 and provides a tranquil green corridor all the way from Comber to the heart of East Belfast with views along the route of Stormont and Scrabo Tower. The walking and cycling route provides local people with a traffic free environment for leisure walking and cycling and offers commuting cyclists a direct and traffic-free route from Comber to Belfast city centre.

The traffic free route begins at Dee Street in East Belfast and passes by the CS Lewis statue at the Holywood Arches, along the Bloomfield Walkway to Sandown Road where it continues past the Police Service NI headquarters to a newly installed toucan crossing at the Knock Road.

From here it travels up to the Kings Road and onwards to Abbey Road, through Tullycarnet and Ardcarn to East Link Road in Dundonald.

The greenway continues through a wetland area emerging at the Comber Road, Dundonald where a toucan crossing has been installed. The route continues from Comber Road, Dundonald past the Billy Neill Centre for Soccer Excellence where the former railway line runs near to the Enler River. Walkers and cyclists can cross the River Enler and farm lanes using a series of reinstated bridges before reaching the final destination at the Belfast Road, Comber.
