York Street, Belfast (1983) - Geograph - 3577916.jpg
York Street, Belfast (1983) A late morning view along York Street at Gt George’s Street not long after the northern/eastern end of the Westlink had opened. Much of the former “Gallahers” factory (upper left) was still standing and (right) the Westlink contractor’s huts (middle right) were still in place. The area was later used as a “park and ride” car park. New planting (part of the Lancaster Street/Gt George’s Street landscaping) can be seen below Gallahers. The cars include a Morris Marina and a Citroen Dyane then in its last year of production. The gantry sign directs Bangor-bound traffic to the right. It used the Queen Elizabeth Bridge then, long before the construction of the M3.
Land for new road and rail links sign, York Street, Belfast (July 1983) - Geograph - 4277219.jpg
'Land for new road and rail links' sign, York Street, Belfast (July 1983) A considerable tract of land, along York Street, between Gt George’s Street and Whitla Street, had been cleared in the late 1960’s for the proposed elevated link road between the M1 and M2. The scheme was rejected after a public enquiry. The land lay vacant for many years before being reserved as the line for what was to become known as the “cross-harbour bridges”. There were many complaints that the large area of vacant ground looked like a bomb site. This sign was erected on the eastern side of York Street although it was to be another eight years before work started.
