The proposed works will widen the carriageway, provide new drainage and resurface approximately 200 metres on the northern end of the scheme and 120 metres on the southern end. 

In order to complete the scheme safely, it will be necessary to introduce some lane closures and operate traffic control measures for the duration of the works.

A full road closure will be required for approximately eight days for the provision of the final carriageway surfacing and road markings. Southbound  traffic will be diverted  from Enniskillen via A4 Sligo Road, A32 Swanlinbar  Road and B108 Mooher Road to Derrylin Road and northbound traffic via B127 Newbridge Road, A34 Lisnagole Road and A4 Belfast Road  to Enniskillen  

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. Access for property owners and deliveries will be accommodated.

Completion of these works will take approximately 12 weeks 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.
