£300,000 resurfacing scheme on Ballinacraig Way, Newry

Date published: 22 August 2019

A £300,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the Ballinacraig Way, Newry will commence on Saturday 24 August 2019.

Road resurfacing

The resurfacing work will extend a distance of approximately 1.1kilometres from the junction with Greenbank Roundabout.  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 temporary traffic control using stop/go boards between the hours of 6.00 am on Saturday and 9.00 pm on 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.

All works are expected to be completed by 30 August, however this will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
