Transport Minister Michelle McIlveen has announced the successful completion of a £1.2million road improvements scheme in Antrim.
The substantial upgrade of one of the key junctions in the town is now fully operational and carrying significant volumes of through traffic away from the town centre.
During a visit to the site at Stiles Way and Steeple Road, Mrs McIlveen said: “The improvements represent a significant investment in the roads infrastructure in Antrim.
“The upgrade will reduce delays for drivers at this key junction and provide improved cycle and pedestrian crossing facilities.”
Steeple Road carries traffic to and from the Antrim area hospital on one side of Stiles Way and large schools, industrial and housing areas on the other.
TransportNI delivered the scheme on time and within budget along with Dunmurry based contractor Northstone Limited.
