A £375,000 road improvement on the A24 Carryduff Road will commence on Thursday 30 September 2021.
The resurfacing scheme which stretches from Creevytenant Road to Carricknaveagh Road in a northerly direction for 2.1 kilometres will deliver significant benefits for road users and should be fully completed by 22 October 2021.
Minister Mallon said:
“This significant investment will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of the road network to the benefit of local residents and those using this transport corridor. I would like to thank the public and local residents in advance for their cooperation and ask that they comply with all temporary traffic restrictions while these much needed works are completed.”
To facilitate the works it will be necessary to implement weekday road closures for the duration of the works from Thursday 30 September 2021 until Friday 22 October 2021 between the hours of 9.00 am and 4.30 pm. A full road closure will also be in place on Saturday 2 October 2021 from 7.00 am until Sunday 3 October at 6.00 pm. During these times a diversionary route will be in place using the A21 Ballynahinch Road/A21 Saintfield Road and the B6 Saintfield Road/B6 Lisburn Road and vice versa. Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained at all times.
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 22 October 2021, 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.
