Broughshane Road in Ballymena

Traffic disruption is expected as Northern Ireland Water begins work to pipes on the Broughshane Road in Ballymena, with the carriageway fully closed for the duration of the scheme.

According to the Department for Infrastructure (DfI), the busy arterial road which includes accesses to St. Patrick's College, Slemish Private Nursing Home and All Saints' Church will be closed continuously from 8:00am on Monday morning (11th March) to 6:00pm on Friday (15th March).

The road will be closed between the Ecos Roundabout and the Chapel Roundabout.

A diversion will be in operation over the cotse of the week from the Broughshane Road, via Fry's Road, and Cushendall Road and vice versa.

Traffic is expected to be particularly heavy during school opening and closing times, as well as the evening commute.

Commenting on the work, a NI Water spokesperson said:

“NI Water is currently carrying out work to complete a water and sewage large diameter connection on the Broughshane Road, Ballymena.


“The works will begin today (Monday 11th March 2024) and it is anticipated the work will continue throughout the week. A full road closure will be in place to facilitate this work. We fully appreciate the inconvenience this will cause while we undertake this vital work for our customers in the area. However, we can assure the public we are working as quickly as possible to minimise disruption to road users.”

A spokesperson for All Saints' Church this week reminded parishioners of the upcoming road closure, and advised:

"The Cushendall Road gates will remain open during this time for access to the church car park. We ask for patience and due care to be taken if using the car park. Thank you."
