£350,000 investment in rural roads in Armagh area

Date published: 29 November 2022

Three rural roads in the Armagh area will benefit from £350,000 of investment in the coming weeks.

Almost 4 kilometres of resurfacing and drainage work will be carried out at Tullybrick Lane, Middletown, the U8561 (Glasgows Lane) off the Madden Road, Keady and Carrickabolie Road, Derrynoose as part of the Department’s Road Recovery programme.

Work will take place from 30 November to the 22 December 2022 and will last no more than two weeks on any of the three roads.  Road closures and local diversions will be necessary to help ensure the safety of those using the road and to facilitate the works.  Any closure will be restricted to 08:00 to 17:00, Monday to Friday and the roads will be open evenings and weekends.  Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained although some minor delays may be experienced.  

Completion of the work by 22 December is dependent on favourable weather conditions.  The Department will keep the public informed of any change. All work will be carried out in line with current public health and safety advice, with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors.
