The M2 hill section, near Greencastle, Newtownabbey
The hill section of the M2, between Greencastle and Sandyknowes, seen from the grounds of the Belfast Castle estate. The inward/southbound off slip is near the middle (above the blue lorry). The M5 J3580 : The M5 near Rushpark, Whiteabbey runs across the top of the photograph.
The M2 at Greencastle, Belfast
The Greencastle Sandyknowes (hill) section of the M2 (later incorporating the M5) opened in 1966 and served as a temporary terminus until the opening of the foreshore section, from York Street, in 1973. The junction allows inward and outward traffic to join and leave the M2 but omits a junction between the inward M5 and the outward M2 and the inward M2 and outward M5.
