Traffic management for Ciclovia Belfast
Traffic Information re: Ciclovia Belfast
Sunday 7th October 2018
Ciclovia will result in a number of roads being closed for several hours on Sunday morning with minor disruption expected to the south of the city centre between 9:00am and 12:30pm.
A traffic free route will be created for cyclists between Botanic Gardens and City Hall, running along Botanic Avenue, Dublin Road and Bedford Street. There will be no access to these roads meaning that Bruce Street will also be closed at its junction with Great Victoria Street. ‘Road Closed’ signage will be present on all approaches.
A team of nearly 50 volunteers will help to provide access to homes, businesses, churches etc. along the route, using the side streets to get drivers as close as possible to the closed sections.
City bound traffic on Great Victoria Street will be unaffected.
Wellington Place, Donegall Square North at the front of City Hall and Chichester Street are unaffected.
The Ormeau Road is unaffected.
Three intersections will be operational to get vehicles across the route:
May Street – Howard Street at the back of City Hall (one way as normal)
Donegall Pass (Ormeau Road to Great Victoria Street and Shaftesbury Square only)
University Street (both directions)
Great Victoria Street and Dublin Road country bound will be closed. Traffic can use Sandy Row or the Ormeau Road to reach the south of the city.
The process to reopen roads will begin at 12:00 and will be completed by 12:30.
Drivers may experience increased cycle traffic away from the route as cyclists make their way to and from the event.
