Hazzard announces the start of £200,000 resurfacing works in Omagh

Date published: 29 December 2016


Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard has announced the start of a £200,000 major resurfacing scheme on the Donaghanie Road, Omagh.

Road resurfacing

A full closure of this stretch of the B158 Donaghanie Road will be in place for two weeks commencing on Tuesday 10 January.

The Minister said:

“This significant investment of £200,000 will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this road and address ongoing maintenance problems. 

“The benefits of this re-surfacing scheme will help meet the needs of the local economy and improve transport connections for people, goods and services.”

The scheme is expected to be completed by 23 January 2017.

Beragh bound traffic will be diverted via the new Cranny Link Road, U1745 Bankmore Road, A5 Doogary Road, A5 Curr Road and the B46 Moylagh Road and vice versa.  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.
