Harrier Way car park is open for business

Harrier Way car park upgrade is now completed. The centrally located Ballyclare facility has received a £130,000 upgrade as part of the Council’s £500,000 overall car park improvement programme, which is being rolled out across the Borough.

The improvements include making the car park safer with new lighting, adding a footpath as well as resurfacing adding new kerbs, a safe pedestrian zone with bollards, improved drainage, along with more disabled and family car parking bays.

Harrier Way car park is the second car park to undergo improvements in the town. Earlier this year, the Square car park also received an upgrade. Car parks in Antrim (Castle Mall and Bridge Street) and Randalstown (Portglenone Road) will also see surface and drainage improvements made by the end of November.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey Alderman Stephen Ross said:

“Car parks can be the gateway to attract people into our towns. Free, easy car parking means people are more inclined to shop local and of course, that is better for our local economy.

“I would like to thank the businesses and shoppers for their patience while the work was undertaken and hopefully, they will reap the rewards from this latest investment in Ballyclare.

“Longer term, you will see improvement works starting in other towns and villages. These include Shore Road carpark, Whiteabbey, Railway Street, Antrim and John Street in Randalstown.”
