£100k bridge improvement scheme at Friary Road Bridge, Armagh

Date published: 14 February 2018

A £100,000 bridge improvement and resurfacing scheme at Friary Road Bridge on the A28 Friary Road, Armagh has commenced.

Lane closure during resurfacing work

The works, which are expected to be completed in early March, will include waterproofing of the bridge deck and the associated road resurfacing. This is a significant investment which will improve and extend the lifespan of the bridge and the road.

To help ensure the safety of road users and contractors a road closure for Killylea bound traffic will operate at all times. Traffic is being diverted via A3 Slip Road South, A3 Irish Street and A3 Slip Road North. Access for local residents and businesses will be accommodated.

The works have been carefully programmed to minimise any inconvenience to the public.  However motorists should expect delays and additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.

The above work is subject to favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
