£170,000 road improvement scheme on Harmony Road and Windmill Street, Ballynahinch

Date published: 05 June 2019

A £170,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on Harmony Road and Windmill Street, Ballynahinch will commence at 7.00 pm on Monday 17 June 2019.

Lane closure during resurfacing work

The resurfacing work will extend a distance of approximately 0.4 kilometres from the Main Street / Harmony Road junction to Windmill Street  /High Street junction.

The scheme will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface quality of the road.

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate an evening and overnight road closure from Monday 17 June to Saturday 22 June between the hours of 7.00 pm and 6.00 am.  During these times a diversion will be in place with traffic being diverted via the B7 Crossgar Road / Vale Road / Cahard Road, A7 Saintfield Road / Downpatrick Street / Downpatrick Road, Annacloy Road / Downpatrick Road and A24 Church Road / High Street.

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

The Department has carefully 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.

Completion of the work by 22 June 2019 is dependent on favourable weather conditions, however, the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
