Road improvement scheme A2 Shore Road, Strangford

Date published: 26 April 2023

A carriageway resurfacing scheme on Shore Road, Strangford will commence on Monday 2 May 2023.

Resurfacing work

The resurfacing scheme will involve the asphalt resurfacing of the Shore Road, from the Downpatrick Road Strangford for a distance of 1.2 kilometres in the Ardglass direction.

This work will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of the road network and enhance road drainage to the benefit of local residents, businesses and those who travel between Strangford and Ardglass.

The initial five weeks of the scheme will involve works adjacent to the road and will not necessitate restrictions on the movement of traffic along the route. To facilitate the safe delivery of the scheme it will be necessary to implement a road closure once works adjacent to the road are completed. A further press release will be issued when details of road closure and diversion routes are known.

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.
