Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon has confirmed a £250,000 resurfacing scheme on the Knockmany Road, Clogher will start on Monday 10 February 2020.
The scheme will start from its junction with the Ballymagowan Road and extend for 2.8 kilometres towards Omagh. The work is scheduled to last for four weeks.
Minister Mallon said:
“I have made clear my intent to tackle the regional imbalance in infrastructure. I want any investment in roads to reflect the need across our entire network. The road improvement scheme on the Knockmany Road represents an investment of £250,000 in the Clogher area. The work will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of road to the benefit of all who use it.”
Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to implement a full road closure from Monday 10 February until Sunday 8 March. A two-way diversion will be in operation via B46 Carnalea Rd, B122 Tattyreagh Rd, Ecclesville Road, B168 Aughafad Road, Fintona Road, A4 Main Street Clogher, Crossowen Road, C650 Main Street Augher, Ballymagowan Road. Access for residents and landowners will be maintained.
The Department has programmed the work operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise inconvenience, however, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the area.
The dates and duration of the works will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
