General Information 

 The construction of the Belfast to Larne A8 Dual Carriageway scheme commenced in Autumn 2012 and is progressing at a steady speed. Traffic is now flowing on approximately 5km of newly constructed sections of road with speed restrictions of 40mph in place. Although there are fully trained traffic marshals patrolling the site on a daily basis to ensure there is a free flow of traffic at all times, customers travelling to the Port of Larne are advised to allow some extra time.

The completed works are on target for Spring 2015, and will provide an enhanced road to Larne Harbour, with shorter journey time from Belfast. The road will not feature any roundabouts, allowing for an uninterrupted journey for 14.5km.

In order to maximize the effectiveness of security efforts with subject to security, would you kindly support our request for all soft sided loaded freight units to be properly closed and sealed prior to delivery to terminal. This will not stop fraud and illegal migration but it will rule out some of the risks posed.

Please note should we receive units that are unsealed we will make every effort to assist in the sealing. However under certain circumstances your unit could be refused entry to terminal.
