The scheme will provide 0.5 kilometres of new asphalt road surface on the A42 Main Street from Townhill Road to the River Bann bridge. The work is scheduled for completion on 26 November.

Minister Hazzard said:

“This £170,000 investment will greatly enhance the road surface and will serve the local community and visitors to the area for many years to come.

“Improving transport connections and maintaining a road network which is fit for purpose is a priority for the Executive. Schemes such as this play a key part in achieving that.”

To protect the safety of the travelling public, retail customers and contractors during the works, it will be necessary to introduce temporary traffic management arrangements and diversionary routes.

TransportNI has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public however, motorists should be aware that some disruption is inevitable and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.

The above planned scheme is subject to favourable weather conditions and road users can keep up to date using the Roadworks Report on TrafficwatchNI
