Road resurfacing

Resurfacing work on four sections, 2.9 kilometres of the Galbally Road between Trillick and Dromore is due to begin on the Monday 30 January 2017.

The Minister said:

“This investment in resurfacing will improve the structural condition of this stretch of carriageway, enhance the running surface and reduce maintenance costs.”

A full closure of the B46 Galbally Road will be in place from the Monday 30 January to Wednesday 15 February 2017 to allow surfacing and all traffic will be diverted via the B46 to Kilskeery, B123 Old Junction Road to Irvinestown, A32 Tummery Road to Dromore, and vice versa. Local access will be provided.

The scheme is expected to be completed by the Wednesday 15 February 2017.

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.
