£381,000 Road improvement scheme for the Dromore Road, Royal Hillsborough to commence

Date published: 18 April 2024

A £381,000 carriageway and footway resurfacing scheme on B177 Dromore Road, Royal Hillsborough will commence on Monday 22 April 2024.

Resurfacing work

The resurfacing scheme, for a stretch of 1200 metres to the Edentrillick Road junction, will deliver significant benefits for road users and will assist pedestrians.

To facilitate the scheme, it will be necessary to implement weekday road closures between the hours of 8.00 am and 5.00 pm for the duration of the works along this stretch from Monday 22 April 2024 until Friday 10 May 2024, from Monday 20 May 2024 until Friday 5 July 2024 and from Monday 22 July 2024 until Friday 2 August 2024.

During periods of closure a diversion will operate via A1 - Hillsborough Road, Dromore - B2 Ballynahinch Road and vice versa.

The Department has programmed the work operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise inconvenience however, while steps have been taken to accommodate local access,  road users should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the vicinity of the works and to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions. 

Subject to favourable weather conditions, the works will be substantially complete by Friday 2 August 2024, however the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
