The section between Larne and Newtownabbey is currently not open. The route follows National Route 99 between Belfast and Newtownards via Comber, although a future link will join Belfast and Bangor via the coast.
There are a number of short traffic-free sections along the route. The major ones of these are: alongside the Foyle in Derry; from Mossley to Belfast; and along the coast into Bangor. The section shared with Route 99 is also mainly traffic-free, utilising the Comber Greenway.
