The Challenge

The first stage of the Ballyclare Western Relief Road was completed in December 2021, with the official opening taking place in the Christmas week.

Our Solution

Invitations were extended to the MP and MLAs for South Antrim, the local Ballyclare Councillors, and the Mayor of Antrim & Newtownabbey Borough Council was invited to cut the ribbon, officially opening the road. As the official opening took place in the Christmas week, we arranged for a tea / coffee and refreshment van to attend the opening to help keep everyone warm and in good spirits.

The Results

Additionally, the press release and accompanying photography secured the front page of the local paper with the headline, “Early Christmas gift as Relief Road opens.”
