Resurfacing scheme for A47 Killadeas Road at Ballycassidy

Date published: 10 August 2020

A £180,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme for the A47 Killadeas Road at Ballycassidy will commence on Wednesday 19 August 2020.

Traffic movement during resurfacing work

The improvement work, which includes resurfacing of the carriageway and upgrading of road drainage, will extend a distance of approximately 1.1 kilometres from the junction with the Lettermoney Road towards the junction with Jubilee Hill Road.

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate a road closure between the hours of 8.00 am and 6.00 pm from Wednesday 19 August until Friday 21 August and from Monday 31 August until Friday 4 September 2020. 

During these times a two way diversion will be in place via A32 Irvinestown Road at Trory Roundabout, A32 Irvinestown Road, A35 Kesh Road and the A47 Killadeas Road. The road will be open to traffic in the evenings during the works and local access for residents will be maintained at all times.   

The Department has carefully planned these roadworks and associated traffic management arrangements in order to minimise inconvenience to the public, however, road users are advised to allow extra time for their journey and to follow the alternative routes which will be clearly signed on the approaches to the closure.

Completion of the work by 4 September 2020 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.
