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.
