In Belfast a resurfacing scheme on Middlepath Street, will continue on Saturday 26th  September 2020.

The scheme, which extends from Station Street to the M3 Middlepath off-slip, will be completed between the hours of 7:00am on Saturday 26 until 6:00pm Sunday 27 September.

To ensure the work is carried out safely, Middlepath Street will be closed to traffic from Queen Elizabeth Bridge on each of these days, however, access will be maintained to Queens Quay and the harbour estate.

During the periods of closure a diversionary route will be clearly signed via Oxford Street, Albertbridge Road and Templemore Avenue. Access for motorists to the M3 from Bridge End will not be possible during the works and this traffic will be diverted via Queens Bridge, Ann Street, Dunbar Link and York Street.

Middlepath Street will remain open for pedestrians and cyclists at all times.

The Department has carefully planned these road works and associated traffic management arrangements to minimise disruption to the public, however road users should allow additional time when planning their journey and comply with all temporary traffic restrictions.
