Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard announced that a £62,000 road improvement scheme on A26 Church Street, Banbridge is set to begin.

Lane closure during resurfacing work

The resurfacing scheme on Church Street extends for approximately 220 metres from its junction with Church Square to Church View Drive.

Minister Chris Hazzard said:

“This investment will deliver significant improvements to the structural integrity and road surface quality of Church Street and will benefit the local community and visitors to the area for many years to come.”

As with all improvement schemes of this type, to help ensure the safety of road users and contractors it will be necessary to put in place diversions and closures. Local access will be maintained during the improvements.

Work will take place on Sunday 4 and Monday 5 September and again on Sunday 11 and Monday 12 September. Church Street will be closed from 5am each Sunday until 6am Monday with work continuing on Mondays from 9.30 am until 4.30 pm.

The Department has programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience, however, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to leave additional time when travelling in the area.
