Kennedy announces the start of £337,000 resurfacing scheme on Massey Avenue, Belfast

A resurfacing scheme on Massey Avenue, Belfast is due to commence on Monday 5 August 2013. 

The £337,000 scheme involves the resurfacing of the footways and carriageway in the street and is expected to take approximately seven weeks to complete.

During the works, two-way traffic flow will be maintained along Massey Avenue. However, to ensure public safety, it will be necessary to close one footway when it is being reconstructed but pedestrian access will be maintained at all times on the opposite footway. Local access to all properties will be maintained throughout the works. 

Danny Kennedy said: “The improvements will result in the overall strengthening of the road and road users will quickly realise the benefits of the new carriageway surface.”

Towards the end of the scheme full road closures of Massey Avenue will be necessary on several days to enable the final surfacing to be laid on the carriageway. During this phase of the works local access will again be maintained to all properties. 

The dates of these closures will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and once confirmed, details will be available on the TrafficWatchNI website: http://www.trafficwatchni.com

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, road users should be aware that some delays are expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
