Please note that the Lagan Towpath will be closed between Becky Hoggs and Sloan Street Lisburn from 22 July 2019 for approximately three days. This is to allow for the removal of trees behind houses on the waterside estate. There is no alternative route other than using Hillsborough Road, Laganbank Road and Sloan Street where you can rejoin the towpath at Hancock Street near the Civic Centre. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
