£218,000 road improvement scheme for Coshquin Road, Londonderry

Date published: 29 October 2019

A £218,000 resurfacing scheme on the Coshquin Road, Londonderry will commence on Monday 4 November 2019 and is scheduled to take four weeks to complete.

Road resurfacing

The scheme, which starts near the Aileagh Road junction and progresses north westwards for a distance of 1.8 kilometres, will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of the road.

To facilitate the resurfacing it will be necessary to implement a full road closure from 7.30am to 6.00pm, Monday to Saturday. A diversion shall be clearly signed via B507 Branch Road and A1002 Buncrana Road. Access for residents, landowners and for pupils and staff attending the local primary school will be accommodated.

The Department has programmed the work operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise inconvenience, however, road users should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the area.

Completion of the work by Saturday 30 November is subject to favourable weather conditions, however, the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
