Major £135,000 road resurfacing works begin in Armagh

Major £135,000 road resurfacing work scheme begin in Armagh next week.

The scheme will extend from the junction with Friary Road for 1.4kilometres on to the Armagh Road, Newtownhamilton and will last for almost two weeks.

Transport Minister Michelle McIlveen said: “This £135,000 scheme represents a significant investment in the roads infrastructure in the Armagh area and road users will realise the long term benefits from the new road surface along this stretch.”

To help minimise disruption to road users and to meet strict Health and Safety Regulations it will be necessary to have a road closure in operation from Monday 30 November until completion of the works on Friday 11 December 2015.



Roads used in the diversions will include the B3 Tassagh Road, A29 Kinelowen Street, A29 Victoria Street, A29 Darkley and A29 Keady Road.

The diversion routes will be clearly signed. TransportNI and the Contractor will make every effort to minimise inconvenience, and would ask that the public exercise caution and patience whilst the works are in progress.

TransportNI has made every effort to programme the necessary works operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise inconvenience to the public.

Motorists, however, should be aware that some delays can be expected and they should allow additional time when planning journeys.

As with all works of this nature planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and TransportNI will keep the public informed of any unavoidable change.
