Castlereagh - A major junction improvement scheme for the C298 Mealough Road at its junction with the A24 Saintfield Road will commence on Monday 24 May 2021.

The improvement work will include road widening, realignments and upgrading of the traffic signals including pedestrian and cycle crossing facilities on both the Mealough Road and Saintfield Road.

To ensure the safety of road users and workers it will be necessary to operate a number of off peak road and lane closures and temporary speed restrictions will be in operation on the Saintfield Road. 

The C298 Mealough Road will be closed from Monday 7th June 2021 for approximately 12 weeks. The Mealough Road will be closed from its junction with the Saintfield Road, to the Mill Road, local access will be available to residents and business patrons..

Access and egress to all facilities at Let’s Go Hydro will remain accessible from Saintfield Road. All other residences/businesses within the closure will remain accessible from the Mill Road end.

Daily off-peak closures (9:30am-4:30pm) on A24 Saintfield Road will commence on Monday 7th June 2021.

Whilst the Department has carefully planned these road works and associated traffic management with the Contractor in order to minimise inconvenience to the public, road users should expect some delays and allow additional time for journeys in this area.

The scheme is expected to be substantially complete by December 2021.
