The scheme will resurface a 1.2 kilometre stretch of the road between Houston’s Corner Roundabout and Carntall Road.

To facilitate the work a full road closure will be in operation continuously from 7.00 am on Monday 10 September until 7.00 pm on Friday 14 September.  A further road closure will be required continuously from 7.00 am on 26 September until 7.00 pm on Friday 28 September.

Lane closures will also be in operation at other times between 17 September and 12 October. Temporary traffic lights will be in place to control traffic during lane closure periods.

A diversionary route will be clearly signposted during road closures via the Carntall Road and Ballynure Road.

The scheme is expected to be completed by mid October however dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change.

The Department has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise 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.
