Flooded Broadway underpass, Belfast - Coppermine - 19629.jpg
Flooded Broadway underpass, Belfast

Broadway underpass on the A12 Westlink filled with dirty river water to a depth of about 15 feet at 1pm on Sunday 17 August 2008. You can see the high water mark from the previous evening. A nearby river overwhelmed its culvert and filled the underpass around tea time on Saturday. There's going to be a lot of silt and other debris to remove from the underpass, including (by rumour) abandoned vehicles.

Flooded Broadway underpass, Belfast

Broadway underpass on the A12 Westlink filled with water to a depth of about 15 feet at 1pm on Sunday 17 August 2008. Engineers have been pumping the water out for about ten hours at this point, and are cleaning the tarmac ahead. The police removed the central reservation as an emergency measure to get vehicles away, and this is also being repaired. A nearby river overwhelmed its culvert and filled the underpass around tea time on Saturday.

Broadway underpass on the A12 Westlink filled with water to a depth of about 15 feet at 1pm on Sunday 17 August 2008. You can see the high water mark from the previous evening ABOVE the roof level of the underpass. A nearby river overwhelmed its culvert and filled the underpass around tea time on Saturday. There's rumoured to be a number of abandoned vehicles still down there.

New signage on the southbound Westlink approaching Broadway reflecting the freeflow nature of the road. Non-motorway traffic is instructed to leave at Broadway, while the M1 chopsticks sign points the way ahead!

Twin signs, one telling relieved motorists that the new Broadway underpass ahead is now open, but another warning that the 30-40mph speed limit still very much applies.

Dodgy gantry on upgraded A12 Westlink - Coppermine - 17196.jpg
Dodgy gantry on upgraded A12 Westlink

This gantry sign was erected northbound on the Westlink between Roden Street and Grosvenor Road in early 2008. However it is erroneous in that the M2 and M3 labels should be written on a blue patch rather than the green background.

Hightown Road bridge over M2, Glengormley

To allow the widening of the M2 to 3+2 to 3+3 lanes, the Hightown Road bridge is being rebuilt. The new bridge will also be 3 lanes wide to allow improvements to the local road above. The temporary footbridge is actually a thin sliver of the finished bridge. Taken from the truncated end of Hightown Road.

Heading south from Grosvenor Road, the point where M1-bound traffic moves across to the future northbound carriageway. The road is really starting to take shape.

Westlink at Roden Street

This space age structure is the new footbridge at Roden Street, here seen M1-bound. The designers have put a lot of effort into the look of the new road, which is great. However this is the spot where the most 'bricking' of vehicles happens, so the bridge is fully enclosed, like its predecessor.

This is looking the other way. I suppose it's possible to use this to bypass the queue and force your way back into the traffic.

Clearance for the new road can be seen to the left of the picture. The first structure, a bridge carrying a local road, is nearing completion just north of this point. The roundabout which currently forms the end of the improved road is straight ahead. This roundabut will evemtually form part of the dumbbell interchange at this point.

The M2 at Fortwilliam
The building of the foreshore section of the M2 between Whitla Street, Belfast and Greencastle was a major civil engineering project. It involved reclamation of a large part of Belfast Lough and the transport of more than 4 million tons of fill, by rail, from Magheramorne near Larne. Work started in 1966 with the road opening in 1973. This is the view north from the overbridge at Fortwilliam. The landscaping has taken well although it is hard to hide a motorway! Those with an interest in such things will note the additional hard shoulder on the inside. This section of road carries more than 90,000 vehicles each day.
