      • South Belfast - Ravenhill Rd - NI Water 5 Week Lane Closure

        Flood Alleviation Project – One Way Road Closure Ravenhill Road

        South Belfast - an essential major NI Water scheme to upgrade the sewerage infrastructure and reduce the risk of flooding in the Ravenhill area of South Belfast commenced Monday 15 March 2021 along a section of Ravenhill Avenue and surrounding streets.

        In order for the first section of work to be undertaken safely, it will be necessary to have a one-way road closure in place on the Ravenhill Road citybound, between the Ormeau Road Roundabout and London Road. 

        This will commence on Monday 15 March 2021 and last for approximately 5 weeks.

        A diversion route will be in place

        • via Ormeau Road/Cromac Street/East Bridge Street, and will be clearly signposted.

        Traffic emerging from side streets onto the Ravenhill Road will be required to make a left turn only.  

        The Ravenhill Road will remain open to Countrybound traffic throughout this time.  

        Detailed traffic management arrangements have been discussed with the Department for Infrastructure throughout the planning of these major works to minimise disruption to residents, road users and the public.

        NI Water and their contractor will do everything possible to minimise disruption and thank the public for their patience and cooperation during this time.

        Following completion of the above, work will be carried out in phases progressing along Ravenhill Avenue, Sunwich Street, Federation Street and Millar Street.
