Gas leak closes road in Newtownabbey

A road has been closed and Northern Ireland Railway service disrupted as the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service (NIFRS) deal with a gas leak in Newtownabbey.

The leak is at shops in Mossley, beside Mossley West Train Station.

Police have closed the road between the junctions of Doagh Road/Carnmoney Road North and Carnmoney Road North/The Glade.

A PSNI spokesperson warned that nobody would be allowed in the vicinity of the leak.

"Absolutely no-one will be allowed down this road, whether walking, cycling or driving. We’ve already had a number of drivers stop with us asking to get down, when there are police cars and police tape across the road," the spokesperson said.

"This will also affect NIR passengers who want to get off at Mossley West station. The trains will not be stopping here.

"Phoenix Gas have just arrived so hopefully the road will be open again soon. "
