The 2.2 kilometre resurfacing scheme will extend from C68 Glensbrae Road to UR157 Gortnageeragh Road on the main road from Ballymena to the Glens of Antrim and is expected to be complete by Friday 4 November.

Minister Chris Hazzard said:

“This investment will serve the local community and visitors to the area for many years. It also goes to demonstrate my continued commitment to maintaining the main road network in key tourism corridors within the region.”

To help ensure the safety of users and contractors, it will be necessary to operate a traffic management convoy system, whereby vehicles will be escorted through the works. This measure will avoid the need for road closures and lengthy diversions which would inconvenience local residents, business and through traffic.  

TransportNI has carefully planned the works operation to keep disruption to a minimum however, drivers should expect delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the area.

The planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions.
