£122,000 road improvement scheme for Moss Road, Londonderry

Date published: 25 September 2018

A £122,000 resurfacing and reconstruction scheme shall commence on the Moss Road, Londonderry on Monday 8 October.

Road resurfacing

The resurfacing work will extend a distance of approximately 670 metres from Glengalliagh Road to Galliagh Roundabout. It is expected work will be completed by 20 October 2018. The scheme will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of the road.

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to implement a full road closure from 8 October to 20 October between 9.30am to 6.00pm daily. During these times a two-way diversion via Glengalliagh Road and Fern Road will be in place.

Diversionary routes will be clearly signed and local access for residents will be maintained at all times during the works.

The Department has programmed the work and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience, however, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to leave additional time when planning any journeys.

Whilst work is expected to be completed by 20 October 2018 this will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
