A £150,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the B73 Coagh Road, locally known as Killybearn Road, will commence on Monday 3 June 2019.
The scheme, which will extend for a distance of approximately 600 metres from Old Coagh Road to Drumgarrel Road, will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of the carriageway.
Given the nature of the scheme, and to help ensure the safety of road users and workers, it will be necessary to implement a full road closure for the duration of the works.
During the road closure a two-way traffic diversion will be in operation along the A29 through Cookstown to Moneymore, the C563 Moneyhaw Road to Drumullan and vice versa.
Advanced warning signage for the closure will be provided and diversion routes will be signed as necessary. Local access will be facilitated.
Completion of the scheme by 15 June is subject to favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
The Department has carefully programmed the work operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, however, road users should expect some delays and allow additional time should when planning any journeys.
