Hazzard announces £190,000 resurfacing scheme for Cromkill Road, Ballymena

Date published: 25 January 2017

Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard has announced a £190,000 structural maintenance scheme for the C47 Cromkill Road, Ballymena.

Road resurfacing

The Minister said:

“This resurfacing scheme will continue my Department’s commitment to improve the main road network and minimise future maintenance costs.  It will benefit road users for many years to come.”

The scheme on the C47 Cromkill Road from the UR77 Ballee Road West to the A26 Lisnevenagh Road will provide 1.2 kilometres of new asphalt road surface.  Work will commence on Monday 6 February 2017 and is scheduled for completion by Friday 17 February 2017.

To protect the safety of road users and contractors on this busy part of the road network it will be necessary to close the road, adjacent diversionary routes will be sign posted.

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 delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.

The above planned scheme is subject to favourable weather conditions, for information about this and other improvement schemes across the North visit www.trafficwatchni.com
