£210,000 resurfacing scheme on A29 New Road, Tullydonnell, Crossmaglen

Date published: 10 January 2020

A £210,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the A29 New Road, Tullydonnell, Crossmaglen is underway.

Road resurfacing

The resurfacing work will extend a distance of 1160m from the border with Co. Louth to a point 50m northwest of St Bridget’s Terrace. 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 daily weekday road closure between the hours of 8.00 am and 6.00 pm from Thursday 9 January until Friday 7 February.  During these times a diversion will be in place as detailed below:

  • Southbound: A29 New Road – B30 Newry Road/The Square/Cullaville Road – A37 Concession Road/Route N53 Castletown Road – R132 Newry Road – R177 Armagh Road
  • Northbound: R177 Armagh Road – R132 Newry Road/Linenhall Street/Bridge Street – N53 Castletown/Route N53/A37 Concession Road – B30 Cullaville Road/The Square/Newry Road – A29 New Road.

The road will be open to traffic in the evenings during the week and all day Saturday and Sunday. 

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 in the area.

Work is expected to be completed by 7 February, however this will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
