Travel Information 

The construction of the Belfast to Larne A8 Dual Carriageway scheme commenced in Autumn 2012 and is progressing at a steady speed. Traffic is now flowing on approximately 5km of newly constructed sections of road with speed restrictions of 40mph in place. Although there are fully trained traffic marshals patrolling the site on a daily basis to ensure there is a free flow of traffic at all times, customers travelling to the Port of Larne are advised to allow some extra time.

The completed works are on target for Spring 2015, and will provide an enhanced road to Larne Harbour, with shorter journey time from Belfast. The road will not feature any roundabouts, allowing for an uninterrupted journey for 14.5km.




Whitemountain Quarries Ltd, on behalf of Transport NI, will be resurfacing the carriageway on Sandyknowes Roundabout commencing 8pm on Monday 15 September 2014. The work is expected to be completed by 6am on Saturday 27 September 2014.

In order to minimise traffic disruption, all work will be carried out using overnight road closures. All approach roads to the roundabout and slip roads to / from the M2 Motorway will, with the exception of the north-bound dedicated off-slip to Scullions Road, be closed from 8pm to 6am daily on the following dates:

Monday 22 September – Friday 26 September 2014

Alternative arrangements for diverted traffic will be in place and information about road closures will be prominently displayed. Road users are advised to plan their journeys accordingly.


Pedestrian access through the scheme will be maintained at all times.


Transportni apologises in advance for any inconvenience caused.
