The scheme will extend from Fintona Road to Findermore Road, a distance of about 800 metres.

Minister Chris Hazzard said:

“This £200,000 scheme represents a significant investment in the roads infrastructure in the Mid Ulster area on this important arterial route between Ballygawley Roundabout and Enniskillen. Road users will realise the long term benefits from the new road surface along this stretch.

“In addition to the resurfacing scheme the opportunity has also been taken to construct a right turning lane into Ashfield Road adjacent to Clogher Cricket Pitch.  This will help to improve traffic flow and increase road safety.    

“Improving transport connections along our key routes while maintaining a network which is fit for purpose is a priority for the Executive. Schemes such as this, play a key part in achieving this.”

To help minimise disruption to road users and to meet strict Health & Safety Regulations it will be necessary to have a road closure in operation from 07.00 am to 5.00 pm on Saturday 22 October and on Sunday 23 October.

Roads used in the diversions will include Fintona Road, Tempo Road, Ecclesville Road and Murley Road.

The diversion routes will be clearly signed. TransportNI and the Contractor will make every effort to minimise inconvenience, and would ask that the public exercise caution and patience whilst the works are in progress.

Preliminary works to provide a right hand turning lane has already commenced at this location with lane closures in operation during the first weeks of work.

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.
