A £200,000 street lighting renewal scheme on Great Northern Road, Omagh is due to commence on Monday 19 January 2021.
The scheme, which extends from the roundabout at the junction of the Gillygooley Road up to the junction with Tamlaght Road, will involve the replacement of the existing street lighting columns and underground cable network.
The Department has carefully programmed the work operations and traffic management in order to minimise inconvenience to the public. All work involving lane closures will be carried out during off-peak times Monday to Friday between 9.30 am and 4.00 pm. Road users should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning journeys.
In order to help ensure the safety of road users and road workers, the public is asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions and to take extra care when travelling in the vicinity of the works.
The dates and duration of the works will be dependent on favourable weather conditions. All work will be carried out in line with current public health and safety advice with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors.
Subject to weather conditions, the scheme is expected to be completed in mid-March 2021.
