“The road will be closed again from 7pm to 8pm this evening to facilitate police to carry out a reconstruction to help determine the circumstances of the RTC.

“Drivers are advised to avoid the area and take an alternative route if possible as some delay is expected.

“Anyone who was travelling on this road this morning who may have witnessed this RTC is asked to contact police at Lisburn / Collision Investigation Unit at Sprucefield on 101.”

Our thoughts are with the man’s family at this time. May he rest in peace.
