£370,000 resurfacing scheme for Townhill Road, Portglenone

Date published: 23 March 2020


A £370,000 resurfacing scheme for Townhill Road will start on Monday 30 March 2020.

The scheme which extends from Tamlagh Cross Roads towards Portglenone for approximately 1.9km is expected to be completed by Friday 29 May 2020.

This essential resurfacing work Is going ahead at this time as part of our commitment to continuing, for as long as possible, to deliver significant improvements to local communities and road users. 

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate weekday road closures between the hours of 7.00 am and 6.00 pm from Monday 30 March 2020 until Friday 29 May 2020 (excluding the Easter holiday period from Monday 13 April until Friday 17 April 2020).

During the road closure, a signed diversion will be in operation via Dreen Road, Lisnahunshin Road and Hiltonstown Road (and vice versa).

The Department has programmed the work operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise inconvenience, however, road users should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the area.

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 extra care when travelling in the vicinity of the works.

The dates and duration of the works will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
