Works on the 600 metre scheme at Munreery are due to start on 3 October and completion is planned for 29 October.

Chris Hazzard said:

“This investment will greatly improve the surface quality of the carriageway on this strategic route between the North West and Belfast which carries 11,000 vehicles on a daily basis.

“The growth of our economy depends on having good infrastructure in place to meet the needs of our people. The benefits of the upgrade to the Foreglen Road will go towards helping meet these needs and improving transport connections for people, goods and services.”

TransportNI has carefully programmed the works 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 dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and TransportNI will keep the public informed of any change.
