Re-opening of Castle Place junction to pedestrians and traffic

The temporary walkway has now been removed and the junction at Castle Place is due to reopen on Thursday 23 May, to allow for traffic flow and fully restored pedestrian access.

Bank Street will remain closed as building work continues.

Construction work is continuing at Bank Buildings but the façade retention scheme in place means that the cordon can be safely reduced. The temporary yellow shipping containers are remaining.

Buses and vehicles will return to Donegall Place/Royal Avenue and Castle Place with traffic moving south towards City Hall only. See below maps for traffic/delivery access.

** Translink update for bus stops on Royal Avenue/Donegall Place **
From Thursday 23rd May Translinks Metro services, inbound only, will operate via Royal Avenue and Donegall Place (outbound routes will operate diversionary routes via North Street).
