The works will provide dedicated right turn lanes into both junctions and a new bus lay-by. The alignment of the A26 Banbridge Road will also be improved, resulting in enhanced safety for road users at this location. 

Work is expected to take approximately 10 weeks to complete. Traffic control will be in operation to facilitate the construction of this scheme and to ensure the safety of road users and site personnel. 

The planned dates for the scheme are subject to favourable weather conditions and TransportNI will keep the public informed of any change.

TransportNI has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any 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.
