£190,000 road improvement scheme for Holywood Road, Belfast

Date published: 01 October 2019

A £190,000 road improvement scheme on the Holywood Road, Belfast will commence on Monday 7 October 2019.

Raking whilst resurfacing a footway

The resurfacing work, which stretches from Tillysburn to Parkway, will greatly improve the surface quality of the carriageway along this part of the trunk road network.

Due to the nature of the work it will be necessary to operate overnight road closures between the hours of 8.00 pm and 6.00 am for road users travelling from Tillysburn towards Parkway.  A signed diversion route will be via Knocknagoney Road, Old Holywood Road and Belmont Road to Parkway.

To help ensure the safety of the public and road workers, road users are asked to follow signed diversionary routes, comply with all temporary traffic restrictions and to exercise care when travelling through, or in the vicinity of, the works.

The Department has programmed the work to ensure it is completed as efficiently and safely as possible with the minimum disruption to road users.

The scheme is expected to be completed by 12 October 2019, however, this is dependent on favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
