A £590,000 resurfacing scheme along the Cladymore Road, Clady, will start tomorrow (Thursday).

The improvement work will extend for in excess of three kilometres, rom the junction with the Cladymilltown Road to the junction with Clady Road.

It includes resurfacing with upgrading of road drainage.

A lane closure controlled by traffic signals will be in place from 9.30am until 4pm on Thursday and Friday.

And from Monday, October 31 until Friday, December 2, there will be a road closure, weekdays, excluding evenings and weekends, from 8am until 5pm daily.

An alternative route will be signed with traffic being diverted via B78 Cladymilltown Road and C204 Clady Road.

A Department for Infrastructure spokesperson said: “Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained although some minor delays may be experienced.

“The Department has carefully planned these roadworks and associated traffic management arrangements in order to minimise inconvenience to the public. Road users are advised to allow extra time for their journey.

“Completion of the work by 2 December 2022 is dependent on favourable weather conditions. 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.”

The news has been welcomed by Sinn Féin Councillor Bróna Haughey.

She said: “The road will remain open on evenings and weekends with local access to the chapel and primary school will still be maintained at all times.

“I look forward to seeing these works completed and hope that they will help to improve road safety for the community.”
