Road improvement scheme for B2 Ballyvally Road, Markethill

Date published: 19 November 2020

A £354,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on Ballyvally Road, Markethill will commence on Monday 23 November 2020.

Resurfacing work

The improvement work will extend 2.8 kilometres from its junction with A28 Newry Road to its junction with B114 Shanecracken Road.

To facilitate the works, it will be necessary to operate a daily weekday road closure (Monday to Friday) between the hours of 09.30 am and 4.30 pm from Monday 23 November until Wednesday 23 December 2020.  During these times a diversion will be in place with traffic being diverted via A28 Gosford Road, B3 Tandragee Road, B114 Dunesmullan Road and B114 Shanecracken Road. The road will be open to traffic in the evenings during the week and all day Saturday and Sunday. Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained at all times.

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 23 December 2020 is dependent on favourable weather conditions. 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.
