A scheme to improve the Knockmore Road / Ballinderry Road Junction in Lisburn will commence on 31 January 2019.
The improvement work will include widening the Knockmore Road, realigning Ballinderry Road and the introduction of traffic signals to control all traffic movements through the junction, including a number of pedestrian and cycle crossings.
To ensure the safety of road users and workers during construction it will be necessary to operate a number of off peak road and lane closures. A temporary speed limit will also be in operation. Road users are asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions and to drive with care when travelling through the works. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
The dates of lane and road closures will be dependent on the progress of the works and also on favourable weather conditions.
Whilst the Department has carefully planned these road works and associated traffic management arrangements with the contractor in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, road users should expect some delays and allow additional time when planning a journey.
The scheme is expected to be substantially completed by July 2019.
