Resurfacing scheme for Drumrane Road, Dungiven

Date published: 23 August 2023

A carriageway resurfacing scheme on the B192 Drumrane Road, Dungiven will commence on Monday 11 September.

Road resurfacing

The resurfacing works begin 14m south of the Carrick Avenue junction on the Drumrane Road and continue towards Dungiven for around 3km incorporating the junctions of New Line Road, Calhome Road and Straw Road and stopping about 175m south of the Straw Road junction.

This work will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of the road network to the benefit of residents, businesses and those travelling between Limavady and Dungiven.

To facilitate the safe delivery of the scheme it will be necessary to implement a road closure from 9.30 am to 4.00 pm, Monday to Friday, from Monday 11 September to Friday 29 September.

During these times a signed diversionary route will be in operation via Baranailt Road, Lisnakilly Road, Catherine Street, Main Street, Connell Street, Irish Green Street Limavady, Ballyquinn Road, Main Street and Foreglen Road Dungiven and vice versa.

Prior to the resurfacing it will be necessary to carry out drainage works at several locations along this scheme. To facilitate the works a lane closure will be required from week commencing 21 August until Friday 8 September.

During the period of both the resurfacing and drainage works the road will be open to traffic overnight and at the weekends.  Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained at all times, however some minor delays may be experienced.

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 vicinity of the works and are asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions. 

Subject to favourable weather conditions all work will be completed by 29 September 2023.  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.
