Work commenced on 6 August to extend the hard shoulder bus lanes along the M1 and M2 Motorways.

As part of the ongoing upgrade of the hard shoulder bus lanes on the M1, the sections between Ballyskeagh and Blacks Road and Stockmans Lane and Broadway re-opened to morning peak period traffic on Friday 16 November. They will operate between 7.30 and 9.30am, Monday to Friday. Work on the new sections of bus lanes will continue and should be completed by February 2019.

Temporary traffic management arrangements are required to carry out the works safely. They will generally consist of localised hard shoulder closures and temporary 50mph speed restrictions.  Some road or lane closures will also be needed at off peak times during evenings/ overnight on weekdays, as well as during weekends and these will be signed in advance.

Work is progressing well on a major NI Water sewerage infrastructure scheme in the Ormeau area, which includes work around Ormeau Avenue, Dublin Road, Bruce Street, Sandy Row and sections of the lower Ormeau Road. Work has now recommenced following the Christmas break. 

Dublin Road - Pipeline installation will take place between Ventry Lane and Pakenham Street. In order to carry out the work safely and maintain traffic flow, it is necessary to suspend some of the parking bays along this section of the street. We anticipate this work will take approximately 4 weeks to complete. Following completion of work on the Dublin Road, sewer laying will move into Pakenham Street where a road closure will be in place.

Ormeau Avenue - Pipeline installation works between Adelaide Street and Bedford Street. During these works for safety reasons, it is necessary to suspend some of the parking bays along this section of the street. Two-way traffic will be maintained during the works with a contraflow system in place. It will also be necessary to relocate the pedestrian crossing at this location for a short period to facilitate the work.

Marcus Ward Street – Work on a new storm sewer is programmed to commence in mid-January and will take approximately 4 weeks to complete, and a road closure will be in place during this time. Vehicular access will be maintained for residents, and pedestrian access will be available at all times. The Dublin Road NCP car park will remain open as usual with a diversion route clearly signposted.
