Motorists warned of Westlink work


Looking north at the proposed new Grosvenor Road junction

Roadworks on Belfast's Westlink are set to make their biggest impact so far on motorists travelling through the city.

From Monday, northbound traffic will be unable to turn right from the Westlink onto the Grosvenor Road.

Motorists heading into the city will have to exit at the Divis Street or Broadway turn-offs.

Those travelling southbound will be unable to turn right towards the Royal Victoria Hospital. The Roads Service has warned motorists to expect delays.

Roy Spiers of the Roads Service said: "I would ask motorists to be patient, and to be aware that there is a change in traffic plans starting on Monday."

Work on the multi-million pound upgrade is due to be completed in the spring of 2009.

It will create three continuous lanes on the M1 and Westlink between Blacks Road and Divis Street junctions.

The Westlink carries 65,000 motorists every day and is Northern Ireland's busiest road.

Two lanes will be maintained in both directions throughout the work from 0600 GMT until 2200 GMT on Monday to Saturday and from 1100 GMT on Sundays.
