Kennedy announces the start of £160,000 improvement works in Lisburn

Transport Minister Danny Kennedy today announced the start of a £160,000 resurfacing scheme on Ballymacash Road, Lisburn.

The work is due to begin on 7 October 2013 between Prince William Road and Killowen Park.

The Minister said: “This scheme will increase the life of the road, greatly improving the strength and ride quality of the carriageway along this busy route.”

Works on Ballymacash Road will commence each morning from approximately 9.30am and continue until 4.30pm each evening. During these works a one way closure will be in place with access restricted in the direction of the Antrim Road. Diversions will be signed accordingly.

The scheme is expected to be complete by 1 November 2013.

During the final phase of the works, a full closure will be in place for one day to ensure the safety of road users and the operation on site.

The above planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and Roads Service will keep the public informed of any change. 

Roads Service has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, however motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
