• New Park and Ride facility

Whitemountain have now completed the new Bus Park and Ride facility at Ballymartin, Templepatrick, ahead of schedule and on budget.

This project involved the construction of a new 550 car park, link roads, bus lanes, attenuation and retention ponds, new roundabout and alterations to motorway on/off slip roads.

The project also involved significant highway works adjacent to the M2 motorway, construction of a new 58m diameter roundabout, on the A57 road whilst maintaining traffic flow in both directions at all times.

The traffic management was delivered in–house and led by our site based Traffic Safety and Control Officer. The traffic management arrangements were particularly complex on this project as there were eight major changeovers required to complete the highway works. The A57 is a major trunk road leading to Larne port which carries significant HGV vehicles, with no traffic restrictions permitted in the Works Information. The junction of the A57 and the M2 off/on slips have a very high traffic flow in excess of 40,000 AADT.
