Resurfacing scheme for Drumnacanvey Road, Portadown

Date published: 15 September 2020

A £107,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the Drumnacanvey Road, Portadown is due to commence on Monday 21 September 2020.

Road resurfacing

The improvement work will extend a distance of approximately 470 metres from its junction with Ballyhannon Road to its junction with Bleary Road. The scheme includes resurfacing of the carriageway and upgrading of road drainage.

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate a daily weekday road closure (Monday – Friday) between the hours of 9.30am and 4.30pm from Monday 21 September to Friday 16 October 2020. During these times a diversion will be in place with traffic being diverted via Old Lurgan Road, Killycomain Road, Gilford Road and Drumnacanvey Road

The road will be open to traffic in the evenings during the week. Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained at all times during the works.  

The Department has carefully planned these road works and associated traffic management arrangements in order to minimise inconvenience to the public. 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 16 October 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 health and safety advice, with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors.
