A Department spokesperson said:

“This significant investment will greatly improve the road surface, help meet the needs of the local economy and serve the local community and visitors to the area for many years to come.”

The scheme will start on Monday 20 February and completion is planned for 28 February 2017.

To help ensure the safety of road users and contractors a lane closure will operate between 9.00 am to 4.00 pm. Access for local residents and businesses will be accommodated. A contra-flow system will operate on Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 February to facilitate the laying of the finished surface.

The works have been carefully programmed to minimise any inconvenience to the public. However motorists should expect delays and additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.

The above work is subject to favourable weather conditions and TransportNI will keep the public informed of any change.
