Road improvement scheme for Glenavy Road, Lisburn

Date published: 10 January 2022

A £308,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the A30 Glenavy Road, Lisburn will commence on Monday 17 January 2022.

The resurfacing scheme, which stretches from the Ballymacash Road to Bensons Road for 2.3 kilometres will deliver significant benefits for road users and should be fully completed by 15 April 2022.

Localised improvement works (one side of carriageway only) are planned on the section of A30 Glenavy Road between Ballymacash Road and the Brokerstown Road junction.  The main carriageway resurfacing works are planned on the section of A30 Glenavy Road extending from Penworth Green to Bensons Road.  

Minister Mallon said:  

“This significant investment will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of the road network to the benefit of local residents and those who travel through the area. I would like to thank the public and local residents in advance for their cooperation and ask that they comply with all temporary traffic restrictions while these much needed works are completed.”

To facilitate the works it will be necessary to implement weekday road closures for the duration of the works from Monday 17 January 2022 until Friday 15 April 2022 between the hours of 9.30 am and 4.30 pm. During these times a diversionary route will be in place using Sheepwalk Road – Mullaghglass Road – Pond Park Road East – Lady Wallace Avenue – Prince William Road – Ballymacash Road, and vice versa.  Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained at all times.

The Department has programmed the work operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise inconvenience, however, road users should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the vicinity of the works and are asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions. 

Subject to favourable weather conditions all work will be completed by 15 April 2022, however, 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.
