The work, on the section of road between Ballybog Road and Ballyskeagh Road will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of the carriageway.

To facilitate the resurfacing it will be necessary to operate a road closure from Monday to Friday between 8.00 am and 6.00 pm.  A diversion will be clearly signposted.

The Department has programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise inconvenience, however, some disruption can be expected for the duration of the scheme and road users should allow additional time when planning any journeys. 

It is expected work will be substantially completed by early April, however, this is subject to favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
