Kingsholme - Tillyroen Road and Upper Ormeau Road intersection upgrade

Due to growth in commuter and heavy vehicle traffic the intersection of Tillyroen Road and Upper Ormeau Road has been identified as a priority for upgrading. Planning is now underway to develop an intersection design that will help reduce delays, manage congestion and improve safety while maintaining reliable travel times during peak periods.

Construction details

Early works for this project will commence in 2020 in preparation for the broader intersection upgrade. 

Services relocations include:

  • water infrastructure
  • overhead power
  • communications infrastructure.

This work will be followed by:

  • drainage culvert outlet works
  • roadway widening.

At times during these early works motorists can expect minor travel time delays. There will be no full road closures, however at times there may be partial lane closures. Access will always be maintained for motorists, pedestrians and local businesses/sporting groups.

We will do our best to minimise inconvenience but there will be some construction noise and dust. Most works will take place from Monday to Friday between 6am and 5pm.

Further information will be provided as the project progresses.
