The resurfacing works extends a distance of approximately 1 kilometre from its junction with the Glen Road (at Sperrin View Business Park) to just beyond its junction with the Fallaghloon Road.

The Minister said:

“This significant investment will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this busy trunk road and address ongoing maintenance problems associated with the road.”

Work is due to commence on Monday 5 September and is expected to be completed on week commencing 17 October.

To help minimise any inconvenience to the travelling public and local businesses two-way traffic flow will be maintained on the Glenshane Road during this period.

The above planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and TransportNI will keep the public informed of any change.

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.
