Traffic movement during resurfacing work

The resurfacing scheme will extend for two kilometres on Hiltonstown Road between the Gortfad Road and the Tullynahinnion Road. Work is expected to be completed by Friday 7 October.

Minister Chris Hazzard said:

“This significant investment will improve the local road network and maintain a key corridor which serves as a gateway across the River Bann.”

To help ensure the safety of road users and contractors it will be necessary to have in place temporary traffic management arrangements and diversionary routes.

The works have been planned to minimise any inconvenience to the public however, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the area. The planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions.
