Motorists are advised to expect delays during a period of road works in Carrickfergus.

The temporary lane closure will operate on St Brides Street from the junction at Victoria Street to The Beauty Study.

It will run on weekdays only from 9.30pm on Monday, September 9 through to 3.30pm on Friday, September 20.

“I have spoken to Road service officials and they aim to get this vital work completed as quickly as possible.”
