Road improvement scheme for A4 Fivemiletown

Date published: 10 September 2020

A road improvement scheme will commence on the A4 at Edfield Way, Fivemiletown on Wednesday 16 September 2020.

Raking whilst resurfacing a footway

The scheme involves resurfacing a stretch of carriageway from just beyond the mini roundabout at the Western end of Main Street, along Edfield Way and finishing just past the Clabby Road junction. Works will also include some minor alterations to the kerbs and footway.

To facilitate safe completion of the works it will be necessary to implement overnight road closures, between the hours of 8.00 pm and 6.00 am, on three consecutive nights on Wednesday 16, Thursday 17 and Friday 18 September.

During the road closure a signed diversion will operate from Enniskillen via Irvinestown, Dromore, Omagh, Ballygawley, Augher, Clogher, Fivemiletown and vice versa.  Pedestrian access to properties adjacent to the works will be maintained. 

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 the morning of Saturday 19 September is subject to favourable weather conditions, however the Department will keep the public informed of any changes to the programme.  All work will be carried out in accordance with current public health and health and safety advice, with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors.
