Road improvement scheme for Cherry Road, Belfast

Date published: 31 January 2023

A £270,000 carriageway and footway resurfacing scheme on Cherry Road, Belfast commenced on Monday 23 January 2023.

The improvement works will extend for a distance of 550 metres from Upper Dunmurry Lane to Cherry Gardens and will deliver significant benefits for residents and road users.

To help ensure the safety of road users it will be necessary to implement localised lane closures while the footway works are ongoing in January 2023 and a full road closure when the carriageway works are ongoing.  The majority of the works will be completed Monday to Friday from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm, however, the final carriageway works are expected to take place at weekends when the local school is closed and network traffic is much reduced.  Details will be displayed in advance of any road closures. 

Subject to favourable weather conditions all works should be complete by 24 March 2023, 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 delays and allow additional time when planning any journey.
