Simpsons Brae to be closed from next Monday

Simpsons Brae in the Waterside is to be temporarily closed to traffic for four weeks.

The Department for Regional Development has announced that the road will be closed from Monday next for four weeks to facilitate sewer replacement.

A spokesperson for DRD said: “The effect of this prohibition will be to exclude vehicles from using Simpsons Brae from its junction with Clooney Terrace to its junction with Duke Street Roundabout from Monday 18 July 2011 for a period of 4 weeks.”

A diversionary route will be sign posted via Spencer Road and Duke Street or alternatively via Clooney Terrace, King Street and Waterside Link. Vehicles will be excluded from entering at the junction with Clooney Terrace.

Residents will be permitted access.
