York Street Interchange: The challenges of an urban environment, Belfast

Watch this event

The £130 million York Street Interchange will address a major bottleneck on the strategic road network, replacing the existing signalised junction at York Street with direct links between Westlink, M2 and M3, the three busiest roads in Northern Ireland.

Stephen Pollock (Department for Infrastructure) and John McBride (Aecom) will describe the planning, procurement and engineering challenges in delivering this complex engineering project in a constrained urban environment.

The lecture will begin at 6:15pm, with refreshments served from 5:30pm. This event is a joint meeting with CIHT.
