Road resurfacing scheme for Doagh Road, Newtownabbey

Date published: 10 February 2021

A £222,000 carriageway and pavement resurfacing scheme on Doagh Road, Newtownabbey will commence on Monday 15 February 2021.

The works, which extend for a distance of approximately 0.51 kilometres from Monkstown Avenue to Cherrylands, will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of the road and the upgrading of approximately 1km of existing footway will greatly enhance provision for pedestrians.

To facilitate the works, it will be necessary to operate lane closures with traffic control in place starting at 7.00am on Monday 15 February 2021 and running daily until 6.00pm on Friday 16 April 2021. 

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. During the works some delays should be expected.  Road users are advised to allow extra time for their journey and to follow the alternative routes which will be clearly signed on the approaches to the closure.

Completion of the work by 16 April 2021 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.
