Commuters into Armagh to face two weeks of traffic disruption

Motorists travelling into Armagh from Dungannon can expect two weeks of disruption.

The A29 from Dungannon to Armagh will be closing for just shy of two weeks – weather permitting – in April to allow for a £150k upgrade scheme.

Transport Minister Michelle McIlveen said diversions will be in place from April 4-11 and again from April 18-22.

Minister McIlveen said she hopes all works along the stretch of road will be completed within six weeks.

“The provision of a right turn lane here (Lislay Road junction) will improve road safety,” she said.

A one-way closure from Dungannon to Armagh on the above dates was considered necessary to complete the works safely, but the road will be open between those times.
