£205,000 road improvement scheme on Lower Foughill Road, Jonesborough

Date published: 11 March 2019

A £205,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the Lower Foughill Road, Jonesborough will commence today, Monday 11 March 2019.

Traffic movement during resurfacing work

The resurfacing work will extend a distance of approximately 2.2 kilometres from the junction of Low Road towards Flurry Business Park. The scheme will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface of the road.

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate a road closure from 8.00 am on Monday 11 March until 6.00 pm on Saturday 23 March.  During these times a diversion will be in place via Meigh and Jonesborough using Railway Road, Drumintee Road, Finnegans Road, Church Hill and vice versa.

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

In order 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 Department has 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 23 March 2019 is dependent on favourable weather conditions, however, the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
