We are now in the final stages of our essential reinforcement work in this area. We would like to thank residents and commuters for your patience while this work is being carried out. The work will enable us to continue to provide secure supply of gas to our existing and growing customer base.
Essential testing will be carried out on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th August, resulting in one lane closure for Belfast-bound traffic, and a road closure with a diversion in place for Bangor-bound traffic. The below map details the diversion route.
We would encourage you to allow extra time for your journey throughout the weekend. And we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
