The resurfacing work will extend a distance of 1.87 kilometres across five separate stretches of the road.

To complete the scheme safely a daily road closure will be in operation on Saintfield Road/Kilcarn Road from Monday 3 August 2020 until Friday 21 August 2020 between the hours of 8.00 am and 5.00 pm. The road will be open to traffic in the evenings and at weekends and access for residents will be maintained throughout.

A signed diversion route will be in place via Carrickmannon Road, Moss Road, Ballybunden Road and Comber Road.

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 take extra care when travelling in the vicinity of the works.

Completion of the works by 21 August is subject to favourable weather conditions, however, 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.
