Date published: 31 January 2017

The Department for Infrastructure has announced that a £200,000 improvement scheme at Cloughey Road, Portaferry is scheduled to commence on Monday 6 February 2017.

Raking whilst resurfacing a footway

The resurfacing scheme, which is expected to be substantially completed by the end of February, will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of the carriageway on a two kilometre section of this important A Class Road between Portaferry and Cloughey.

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.

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 TransportNI will keep the public informed of any change.

TransportNI has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements 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.
