Temporary traffic management measures at Millennium Way Lurgan as extension enters its final phase

Date published: 10 April 2017

Temporary traffic management measures will be put in place at Millennium Way Lurgan as construction work to complete the new extension enters its final phase.

Resurfacing work

These works are to connect the new Millennium Way extension to the Flush Place/Gilford Road/Banbridge Road with a larger roundabout.

A number of temporary road and localised lane closures are required to carry out the works safely. The first of these lane closures will run from 10 to 14 April with the new Millennium Way extension being used as part of the diversion route. The remainder will be programmed over the coming weeks as work progresses.

All businesses within the vicinity of the works will remain open for business. Parents and pupils walking to school are advised to follow the advisory signage provided.

The Department for Infrastructure has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience, however motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.

All works on the project are expected to complete in late May 2017. The Department will continue to work with the construction contractor and utility providers to complete the works as soon as possible and will endeavour to minimise delays during the remainder of the works.

Details of subsequent closures will be provided in notices in the local press and information about this and other improvement schemes is available on www.trafficwatchni.com/
