The Queen Elizabeth II Bridge is a bridge over the River Lagan in Belfast, that doubles the capacity for cross-city traffic on the A2 by carrying eastbound traffic, while westbound uses the older Queen's Bridge.

The bridge was opened on 4th July 1966 by Queen Elizabeth II.

The City Council had originally debated naming the bridge after Edward Carson, but eventually the current name was chosen[1]
