Disruption 'unavoidable'

Commuters have been warned that DRD Roads Service is about to begin major roadworks on the Bangor to Belfast Road.

Work on the £400,000 resurfacing scheme on the A2 Belfast Road will begin on Monday, July 26.

The scheme involves resurfacing the 2.3km section of the Bangor-bound carriageway between Ballyrobert Road and Ballysallagh Road, and is expected to last six weeks.

The Roads Service network maintenance manager, Colin Brown said: “This route carries in excess of 30,000 vehicles each day, and disruption due to the works will unfortunately be |unavoidable.

“However, Roads Service and the contractor Gibson (Banbridge) Ltd, have carefully planned the works operations, and the temporary traffic management arrangements, in order to minimise inconvenience to those directly affected, and the travelling public.”

The work will be carried out under lane closure arrangement, by utilising the following temporary traffic management measures:

Monday to Friday: Bangor-bound traffic will be restricted to a single-lane until 4.30pm.

Saturday and Sunday for two weekends (date TBC): Bangor-bound carriageway will be closed and a contra-flow system will operate Belfast-bound.

For further information or clarification contact the Roads Service North Down Section Office, Bangor, at 9127 9800.
