The Lough Road closure will be in effect from 8.00am to 6.00pm on Saturday 23 June and Sunday 24 June, from 9.30am to 4.00pm Monday 25 June to Friday 29 June and from 8.00am to 6.00pm Saturday 30 June to Friday 6 July. To facilitate the resurfacing works traffic is being diverted via Kiln Road, Silverwood Road, Eastway, Portadown Road, Edward Street, Church Place and William Street.

On completion, these schemes will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface of the roads.

The Department has programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience, however, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to leave additional time when travelling in the area.

The above work is subject to favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
