Date published: 03 December 2018

A £165,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on Ashgrove Road, Portadown is due to commence on Sunday 9 December 2018.

Resurfacing work

The work will deliver significant improvements to the strength and surface quality of the road by delivering approximately 1,300 metres of resurfacing from Garvaghy Road to the National Speed Limits on the Ashgrove Road.  Works are expected to be complete by Friday 21 December 2018.

In order to ensure both the safety of road users and contractor staff, road closures and traffic management will be in operation.  On Sunday 9 December 2018 a road closure will be in effect from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm. From Monday 10 December 2018 to Friday 21 December 2018 this closure will be in place from 9.30 am to 4.00 pm. Traffic will be diverted via Ashgrove Road, Derryanvil Road, Garvaghy Road and Ashgrove Road. Local vehicular and pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the period of the works.

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

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 care when travelling through, or 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.
