Belgrave Flyover was closed on February 1 to allow for preparations to demolish the structure and make improvements to the area. The nine-week demolition process is planned start this Saturday while the wider works to improve the area will continue until October.
From this Saturday until Sunday, February 23, the flyover will be taken down in three large sections, starting with a nine-day road closure of the northern part of the roundabout beneath the flyover. During this time, traffic will not be able to exit the junction north towards Belgrave Road or enter the island from the southward inbound carriageway. The rest of the roundabout remains open as normal.
A second nine-day closure will take place from Saturday, March 15 to Sunday, March 23 to enable the section of the flyover immediately above the southern section of the roundabout to be removed. The rest of the junction will remain open.
Works will take place from 7am to midnight during the week-long closures.
During the rest of the demolition works, traffic can keep using the roundabout. Businesses on Belgrave Road will also continue to trade as normal throughout the project.
There is expected to be disruption to buses and other traffic going into and out of the area.
