£300k boost for local streets

Two road improvement schemes for Antrim totalling £321,000 have been announced by Transport Minister Danny Kennedy.

Resurfacing works will take place in Castle Way, Church Street, High Street and at Chapel Corner roundabout.

Danny Kennedy said: “The improvements will result in the overall strengthening of the road and road users will quickly realise the benefits of the new carriageway surface.”

Work costing £195,000 will begin on Monday 2 June and continue until 13 June 2014 between Castle Way, Church Street and High Street.

To protect the safety of the travelling public and contractors during this surfacing scheme, it will be necessary to close the carriageway to night time through traffic from Monday, June 2 to June 13.

A diversion route will be signposted via Cunningham Way/ Belmont Road and Dublin Road. Road closure notices will be provided in advance of and during these works with adjacent diversionary route signs posted for road users.

Work will begin on the second scheme on Monday, June 16 and continue until June 20 at Chapel Corner Roundabout at a cost of around £126,000.

To protect the safety of the travelling public and contractors during this surfacing scheme, it will be necessary to close the carriageway to night time through traffic from Monday, June 16 to June 20. Diversion routes will be signposted via M2 Motorway, Stiles Way/ Fountain Hill and Belmont Road/ Cunningham Way.

Road closure notices will be provided in advance of and during these works with adjacent diversionary route signs posted for road users.

The above planned schemes are subject to favourable weather conditions and road users can keep up to date using the Roadworks Report on http://www.TrafficwatchNI.com

Roads Service has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, however motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
