THE A2 - FLOATING SECTION

The Strangford Lough ferry between Strangford and Portaferry is operated by the NI Roads Service and is regarded as part of the A2 road which runs around the entire NI coast. This is the A2 (sorry . . . �Portaferry II�) departing Strangford, for Portaferry, on 3 October 2006. See http://www.roadsni.gov.uk/Strangford_Ferry/index.htm

The Bangor to Newtownards road near Conlig
The Bangor to Newtownards road was dualled in the early 70�s. This is the view to Newtownards just south of Conlig. There is a story (apocryphal perhaps) that the Iron Lady, on her first visit to NI, was taken on a tour of the quieter areas. It seems that she thought that this road was too good for the traffic then using it and promptly �handbagged� the NI entire roads budget. It is only just starting to recover!

Newtownards Road roundabout, Bangor
The Newtownards Road roundabout is one of five on the Bangor ring road. It is also the busiest. Just as I was returning my camera to its bag I heard the distinctive �nee-naw� from the nearby fire station. This is the result. Note: part of the roundabout is in J5080.
