Hazzard announces £120,000 resurfacing scheme for B127 Ballyconnell Road, Derrylin

Date published: 19 October 2016

Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard has announced a £120,000 resurfacing scheme on the B127 Ballyconnell Road, Derrylin.

Lane closure during resurfacing work

Work on a 1,000 metre stretch of the road near Greagh Bridge will commence on Monday 24 October 2016 and last for up to two weeks. The road will be closed from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm, Monday to Friday.

Minister Chris Hazzard said:

“Improving transport connections along key routes while maintaining a network which is fit for purpose is a priority for my Department and the wider Executive.

“This £120,000 scheme is an example of that.  It represents a significant investment in the roads infrastructure in the Fermanagh area on an important cross border route.  I am confident that road users will realise the long term benefits from the new road surface along this stretch.”

During the periods when the road is closed, traffic will be diverted via the A509 Derrylin Road and C431Teemore Road.  The diversion routes will be clearly signed to assist road users.

TransportNI has made every effort to programme the necessary works operations, and traffic management arrangements, to minimise inconvenience to the public. However road users should be aware that unavoidable delays are to be expected and should allow additional time when planning journeys in the area.

As with all works of this nature planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and TransportNI will keep the public informed of any unavoidable change.
