£230,000 resurfacing scheme for the Doagh Road, Monkstown Newtownabbey

Date published: 16 February 2017

A £230,000 resurfacing scheme will commence on the B59 Doagh Road, Monkstown on 20 February 2017 between Bridge Road and Monkstown Road Newtownabbey. The off-peak lane closures will commence on 20 February 2017 and continue for approximately eight weeks.

Resurfacing work

To help minimise any inconvenience to the travelling public and local businesses the majority of this work is programmed to be completed using off-peak lane closures, and weekend working.  However, two weeks with a full lane closure will be required to complete a full reconstruction of a section of carriageway.

Diversions will be in place via Monkstown Road, Old Carrick Road and Doagh Road.

The Doagh Road section will be substantially complete by Easter, however a full closure of the Doagh Road will be in place on Sundays 7 and 14 May to allow final surfacing and all traffic will be diverted as above.

As with all improvement schemes of this type the planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and TransportNI will keep the public informed of any changes.

TransportNI has carefully programmed the work and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, however motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
