£405,000 footway and carriageway improvement scheme at Suffolk Road, Belfast

Date published: 26 April 2021

A £405,000 footway and carriageway resurfacing scheme on Suffolk Road, Belfast will commence on Monday 26 April 2021.

Lane closure during resurfacing work

Works will commence with both footways being resurfaced and when this has been completed will be followed with resurfacing of the carriageway, a total distance of approximately 1,300 metres.

Minister Mallon said: 

“This much needed investment will greatly improve this busy stretch of road for all who use it. I am committed to increasing the opportunities for active travel and I am pleased that the new pavement being delivered by this scheme will greatly enhance provision for pedestrians.”

To help ensure the safety of road users and workers it will be necessary to implement  a series of daily lane closures, week days only between the hours of 8.00 am and 6.00 pm while the footway resurfacing is taking place. Full  road closures will be required for the carriageway resurfacing however the Department will keep the public informed of closure dates and access for residents will be maintained as much as possible.

Road users are asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions and to drive with care when travelling in the vicinity of the works.

Completion of the scheme by 18 June will be dependent on favourable weather conditions.

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 delays and allow additional time when planning any journey.
