£231,000 road improvement scheme for Ballymagorry, Co. Tyrone

Date published: 30 November 2018

A £231,000 resurfacing and reconstruction scheme is due to commence on the B49 Woodend Road, Ballymagorry on 4 December 2018.

Road resurfacing

The work will also include the construction of a stretch of infill footway from Lawson Park to Cavancor View.

The scheme will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of the road and provide better pedestrian safety and connectivity.

In order to ensure both the safety of road users and contractor staff, road closures will be in operation at various stages of the work. These road closures will be in operation after Christmas and details will be published in due course.

A two way diversionary route will be clearly signposted and will operate via A5 Victoria Road, B49 Woodend Road and B49 Berryhill Road and vice versa. Local access will be facilitated.

The work operations and traffic management arrangements have been carefully programmed in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, however, some disruption can be expected for the duration of the scheme and road users should allow additional time when planning any journeys.

Completion of the work by the 31 January 2019 is subject to favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
