Road improvement scheme for A36 Shaneshill Road, Larne

Date published: 04 January 2023

A £650,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on A36 Shaneshill Road, Larne will commence on Monday 16 January 2023.

The scheme extends from the Glenhead Road for 930m towards Upper Ballyboley Road and from 200m west of Starbog Road for 1350m towards Belfast Road. Work is expected to be completed by 3 March 2023.

To facilitate the works, it will be necessary to operate a road closure from Monday 16 January 2023 until Friday 3 March 2023, between the hours of 7.30 am until 6.00 pm, Monday to Friday.  During these times a diversion will be in operation via Collin Road – Ballyclare Main Street – Hillhead Road – Templepatrick Road – A8 Larne Road – A8 Belfast Road and vice versa.

Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained at all times.

The Department has carefully planned these road works and associated traffic management arrangements in order to minimise inconvenience to the public.  Road users are advised to allow extra time for their journey and to follow the alternative route which will be clearly signed on the approaches to the closure.

Completion of the work by 3 March 2023 is dependent on favourable weather conditions.  The Department will keep the public informed of any change.  All work will be carried out in line with current public health and health and safety advice, with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors.
