£445k Resurfacing Works For Bangor

Transport Minister Danny Kennedy has announced the start of a £445,000 resurfacing scheme on the A2 Belfast Road.

The works will be carried out (Belfast bound) between the Ballysallagh Road and Ballyrobert Road junctions.

The resurfacing works are due to begin on 2 September 2013 and last for seven weeks.

From 2 September, lane restrictions will be in operation between the two road junctions and will operate as follows:

  • Belfast Bound in operation between 9.30am to 4.30pm


  • Bangor Bound in operation between 9.30am to 4pm.


During the contract period, traffic will be restricted to a single lane at off-peak times.

There will be no restrictions during the morning and afternoon peak traffic flows Monday to Friday.

In order to complete the surfacing of the Belfast bound carriageway safely, it will be necessary to introduce a contra-flow arrangement during the weekends 05/06 and 12/13 October 2013 to control traffic. This means that, during the two weekends, two-way single lane traffic flow will operate on the Bangor bound carriageway.

It is not intended to restrict traffic movements at Ballysallagh Road and Cootehall Road junctions with the A2. The scheme is expected to be completed by 18 October 2013.

The above planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and Roads Service will keep the public informed of any change.

Minister Kennedy said: "The announcement of this scheme demonstrates my Department's Roads Service commitment to investment into the road network within the North Down area. The scheme is expected to be completed by 18 October 2013."
