Work involves resurfacing of a 1.28 kilometre section of the road at Carrickreagh at a cost of approximately £145,000 and 1.845 kilometre section at Cosbytown at an estimated cost of £213,000. Work is expected to be completed within 4 weeks.

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 local investment will improve the strength and surface quality of this important Enniskillen to Belleek road. The improvement will deliver benefits for the local community and visitors to the Fermanagh area for many years to come.”

As with all improvement schemes of this type, the planned date is subject to favourable weather conditions.

TransportNI has planned the works and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience.  Traffic diversions will be in place, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the area.  For information about this and other improvement schemes across Northern Ireland visit: http://www.trafficwatchni.com.
