Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy has set out Roads Service’s progress on investment totalling £12.6 million for road improvement and maintenance schemes in the Belfast City Council area this year.
Kennedy (pictured) said: “A wide range of road improvement and maintenance schemes is planned or already complete in the Belfast City Council area.
“Schemes completed include the carriageway and footway resurfacing at the Belmont Road and Glen Road, from Shaw’s Road to Suffolk Road. Further major resurfacing schemes in progress include Massey Avenue and, following my recent announcement, works have commenced at Duncrue Street. In addition extensive structural maintenance repair work has been completed on the Boyne Bridge.
“The autumn round of council meetings is a timely opportunity for councils to discuss potential schemes and priorities.”
Speaking at a meeting between Roads Service and Belfast City Council deputy divisional roads manager, Roy Spiers highlighted a number of improvement and maintenance schemes currently planned or progressed.
He welcomed expenditure on structural maintenance which had allowed the division to deliver many needed projects including over 17km of carriageway resurfacing incorporating works.
