Motorists to expect road closures of busy Belfast route during £400,000 resurfacing scheme

Road closed Copyright: jpimedia A statement from the Department of Infrastructure says the work will take place 'on the country bound lanes and is scheduled to be completed over three consecutive weekends: 6 to 9 March, 13 to 16 March and 20 to 23 March'. It adds that to facilitate the works it will be necessary to implement a series of weekend road closures between 11pm each Friday night until 4.30am the following Monday morning.

The road will be open at all other times. The statement adds that 'work has been carefully planned to minimise disruption, however some delays can be expected and road users, particularly those travelling to George Best City Airport, are advised to allow extra time for their journey and follow the alternative routes which will be clearly signed on the approaches to the closure'.

Minister Mallon said: "The Sydenham Bypass is a very busy and vital part of the road network. This significant investment of GBP400,000 will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of the road and will serve the travelling public for many years to come."

Completion of the work by 23 March is subject to favourable weather conditions, however, the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
