£100,000 road improvement scheme for Serpentine Road, Belfast

Date published: 09 July 2019

A £100,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on Serpentine Road, Belfast is due to commence on Monday 22 July.

Lane closure during resurfacing work

The resurfacing, which extends from Whitewell Road to its junction with Merston Gardens, will greatly improve the structural integrity and surface quality of the road.

To help ensure the safety of road users and contractors the improvements will be carried out under the following road closures:

  • Monday 22 July to Wednesday 24 July 2019 from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm;
  • Monday 29 July to Friday 2 August 2019 from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm.

Diversionary routes will be clearly signed and access for residents will be maintained in the area for the duration of the works. During the work parking will not be permitted on this section of Serpentine Road and residents are requested to park outside the works area during this time.

Completion of the scheme by Friday 2 August will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions, however, the Department will keep the public informed of any change.

Whilst the Department has carefully planned these road works and associated traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, road users should expect some delays and allow additional time when planning any journey.
