A Pound 124,000 resurfacing scheme on The New Road, Annahilt will commence on Monday 31 January 2022.
The resurfacing scheme, which stretches from the Windmill Road to the Glebe Road for 2.3 kilometres, will deliver significant benefits for road users and should be fully completed by 4 March 2022.
Minister Mallon said:
"This significant investment will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of the road network to the benefit of local residents and those who travel through the area. I would like to thank the public and local residents in advance for their cooperation and ask they comply with all temporary traffic restrictions while these much needed works are completed."
To facilitate the works it will be necessary to implement weekday road closures for the duration of the works from Monday 31 January 2022 until Friday 4 March 2022 between the hours of 8.00 am and 6.00 pm. During these times a signed diversionary route will be in place using Windmill Road - Glebe Road and vice versa. Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained at all times.
The Department has programmed the work operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise inconvenience, however, road users should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the vicinity of the works and are asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions.
Subject to favourable weather conditions all work will be completed by 4 March 2022, 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.
