M2 drivers face delays in £400,000 roadworks

A £400,000 road improvements scheme on the M2 in Belfast will begin on Thursday - meaning diversions for drivers at one of Northern Ireland's busiest traffic spots.

Resurfacing will take place on the M2 northbound from the York Street junction to the Fortwilliam roundabout, with the work due to be completed by Monday, August 10.

Parts of the M3 westbound and M2 northbound will be closed on Thursday night, with more closures from 8pm on Saturday until 6am on Monday morning.

Diversions will be in place via Great George Street and York Street, while the Middlepath on-slip will also be closed during the work.

The following weekend, three lanes of the M2 northbound will again be closed from 8pm on Saturday until 6am on Monday, August 10, with diversions via York Street, York Road and Shore Road.

Transport Minister Danny Kennedy said: "This £400,000 improvement scheme represents a significant investment in the strategic road network."
