THE Frosses Road, Ballymoney remains closed between the Kilraughts Road and Portrush Road roundabouts today (2pm Friday Nov 8).

The Chronicle understands that the closure is to allow police and accident investigators to do their work in the aftermath of a serious road accident.

Air Ambulance NI attended the scene, with unconfirmed reports suggesting that a cyclist was taken to hospital.

Police diversions are in place and motorists are advised to avoid the area and seek an alternative route.

The closure has resulted in ongoing congestion in Ballymoney as vehicles travelling on the Frosses Road detour through the town.

This morning before 9am there was an ambulance and police car on stand by at a traffic island near the Kirk Road junction.

Kirk Road/Newel Road were backed up all the way to Cloneen Drive with congestion on the Ballymena Rd and Kilraughts Rd as well.
