No 'good time' for roadworks

Published 14/09/2012

I refer to 'Don't let all this traffic chaos drive you crazy' (Comment, September 11).

DRD would point out there is no 'good time' to carry out works on the busy city-centre road network. The current phase of the Belfast on the Move transport plan involves a range of traffic-management works across the city-centre, which will not be completed until spring/summer 2013.

Therefore, the works could not be completed within school holiday periods. However, in order to minimise disruption to traffic, the works are, where possible, being undertaken outside peak hours.
