Northern Ireland traffic: overturned vehicle causing long delays in Belfast on the M1
There are currently long traffic jams on the M1 this afternoon after a previous crash.
Police say they are warning motorists that the M1 heading to the city is now blocked following the road collision near Applegreen.
Drivers are urged to “find alternative routes for your trip” as PSNI and emergency services remain on the scene.
In an updated statement, a PSNI spokesperson said: “Traffic on the M1 (into town) near Lisburn remains heavy following a traffic accident near Applegreen.”
There are no further details at this time.
Meanwhile, a 3.7-kilometer greenway has been completed in Strabane, providing a high-quality route for pedestrians and cyclists throughout the city.
The Green Lane provides an alternative non-vehicular mode of travel to shops, workplaces and schools in Strabane and the nearby town of Lifford.
The £ 1.292million project was funded by the Department for Communities (£ 729,000), Derry City & Strabane District Council (£ 509,000) and the Department for Infrastructure (£ 54,000).
Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey said: “This investment by my ministry of £ 729,000 has made a welcome addition and improvement to the greenway network in Strabane.
“The physical and visual improvements have not only enhanced the image of the region, but more importantly, have connected communities and improved accessibility. It is now a vibrant neighborhood where all are welcome, feel safe and can travel in a sustainable manner, providing everyone with an inexpensive place to exercise regularly. It also helps generate economic activity and help our city centers recover by providing a gateway for many to use to support local traders as we come out of containment in a safe and controlled manner.
“It’s great that the Green Lane is now complete and can be enjoyed by everyone in the local community for years to come. “
