The scheme will involve the replacement of the existing lights with a new LED street lighting system and will also include a full replacement of all underground cables.  The scheme will extend from Portadown train station up to and including the Shillington Bridge.

The Department has carefully programmed the work operations and traffic management in order to minimise inconvenience to the public.  Work involving lane closures will be from Sunday 25 October 2020 to Sunday 8 November 2020 excluding Saturdays. These works will take place during off peak times between 9.30 am and 3.30 pm Monday to Friday and 6.00 am and 12.00 on Sundays. Road users should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any 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 the progress and 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 by mid-November 2020.
