Resurfacing work

The 1.44km scheme which extends from Scroggy Road to near Ballyavelin Road, Ardgarvan is expected to be completed by Sunday 23 February 2020.

Minister Mallon said:

“I have made clear my intent to tackle the regional imbalance in infrastructure. I want any investment in roads to reflect the need across our entire network.  I am pleased to announce this significant investment in the Limavady area.  This scheme will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of the road network and will serve the local community and visitors to the area for many years to come.”

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to introduce a full road closure from 7.30 am to 6.00 pm daily from Thursday 13 February 2020 until Sunday 23 February 2020. 

During the road closure a diversion will be in operation for Limavady bound traffic via Derryork Road, Drumrane road, Baranailt Road, Lisnakilly Road and Main Street Limavady.

Dungiven bound traffic will be diverted via Ballyquin road, Irish Green Sreet, Catherine Street, Lisnakilly Road, Barnailt Road and Drumrane Road.

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

In order to help ensure the safety of road users and road workers the public is asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions and to drive with extra care when travelling in the vicinity of the works.

The dates and duration of the works will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.  For traffic information about this and other road schemes visit: www.trafficwatchni.com
