North Belfast roadworks will bring delays

Traffic delays are expected when diversions come into effect for a major resurfacing scheme on Donegall Park Avenue in north Belfast later this month.

Work is due to begin on Monday, January 27 between Shore Road and Antrim Road.

The Department for Regional Development (DRD) said the £172,000 scheme would be completed using both a one-way closure and full road closure.

From January 27-31, a one-way closure from Shore Road will be in operation to facilitate preparation works to the carriageway surface and associated ironwork.

The work will be carried out each day between 9.30am and 4.30pm. During the closure, all traffic will be diverted using either Shore Road, Fortwilliam Park and Antrim Road route or Shore Road, Grays Lane and Antrim Road.

From February 3-5 a full closure will be in operation between 9.30am and 4.30pm daily to carry out asphalt laying. Diversion routes will be the same as for the one-way closure.

Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy said: "Road users will benefit from the overall strengthening of the road structure and an improved carriageway surface."

A DRD spokesman said: "Roads Service has programmed the works operations and traffic management in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public. However, motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected."
