The 260 metre resurfacing works extend from the Square in Comber Street to the roundabout at Comber Road. Improvements will also be undertaken to some of the adjacent footways and the drainage system will be upgraded. The scheme will start on Monday 1 August and finish on the 27 August 2016.

The Minister said:

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

A road closure will be in operation generally between 08.00 am and 6.00 pm from Monday 1 August 2016 to Saturday 27 August 2016 (Road open overnight and on Sundays).
