Due to roadworks that are set to commence on 23rd September, there will be some disruption to the Sydenham Bypass for the next five weekends that may affect those travelling to Belfast City Airport.
To complete the £1.7million resurfacing scheme safely, it will be necessary to implement road closures on the country bound lanes of the Sydenham Bypass between 11pm on Friday night and 5am on Monday morning on the following dates:
- 23rd to 26th September
- 30th September to 3rd October
- 7th October to 10th October
- 14th October to 17th October
- 21st October to 24th October
A number of weeknight closures will also be in operation Monday to Thursday to facilitate preparatory works.
Road users, particularly those travelling to Belfast City Airport, are advised to allow extra time for their journey and follow the alternative routes which will be clearly signed on the approaches to the closure.
During these times a diversionary route will be clearly signed via Sydenham Road, Airport Road, Airport Rd West, Holywood Exchange, Belfast Road.
Completion of the work by 24 October is subject to favourable weather conditions, however, the public will remain informed of any change.
All work will be carried out in line with current public health and health and safety advice, with safe systems of working in place.
