The resurfacing scheme will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of the carriageway on an 800 metre section of this important C class link road on the outskirts of Bangor.

To help ensure the safety of road users and contractors it will be necessary to operate temporary traffic signals and a road closure during the course of the improvements.

The first phase of resurfacing will be carried out over four consecutive nights from 29 May to 1 June 2017 between the times of 8.00 pm and 6.00 am.

The second phase will be carried out over two consecutive nights on 5 June and 6 June 2017 between the times of 8.00 pm and 6.00 am.

Local access will be maintained and all diversions and restrictions will be clearly signposted.

The planned dates for the scheme are subject to favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change.

The works operations and traffic management arrangements have been carefully programmed in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, however motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
