Completion of £450,000 A1 road safety improvement schemes, Banbridge 

Two road safety improvement schemes on the A1 Dual Carriageway at Banbridge are now complete.

The schemes, designed to improve safety for motorists, involved the erection of a central reserve safety barrier between Springwell Loanin and Castlewellan Road Bridge on the Banbridge Bypass.

To facilitate the barrier installation it was necessary to permanently close all crossing points in the central reserve along this stretch of the A1.

This significant investment of £450,000 will greatly improve road safety along this extremely busy stretch of the A1. The installation of the central safety barrier is welcome news for the 30,000 drivers who use the road each day.

This is part of a number of incremental improvements which are being progressed in advance of the delivery of the full A1 Junctions Phase 2 scheme. The works, when complete, will deliver benefits for road users for many years to come at Banbridge are now complete.
