The Department for Infrastructure Roads, working on behalf of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council will be undertaking pavement and carriageway resurfacing works in the following areas of Carrickfergus Town Centre:

• Antrim Street
• Section of Lancasterian Street from North Street to The Back Ln
• Area immediately in front of the Civic Centre and De Courcy Centre

These works are planned to commence January 2019, with the completion of all areas anticipated by July 2019. Completion within this timeframe will, however, be subject to satisfactory weather conditions and no unexpected delays in relation to utilities and services.

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council will provide further details once a programme of works has been finalised with DfI Roads, and following commencement of the works progress reports can be emailed directly to you by Council.  If you wish to be included in these communications please forward your email contact details to either of the council contacts below.

There will also be representation from DfI Roads and Council throughout the project delivery, who will liaise with traders and public as and when necessary. 
We appreciate that this type of work will cause disruption in terms of the noise, closure to sections of pavements, on-street parking and in some instances the carriageway and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We will, however, work together to ensure access to your premises is maintained throughout the works.
