Keep up with Armagh i

Major £300,000 roadworks will keep south Armagh road closed for three weeks

The scheme is due to be completed by November 10

A £300,000 road improvement scheme on the A25 Newtown Road, Camlough is underway.

The resurfacing works extend a distance of approximately 1.2km from its junction with the B30 Newtown Road, Camlough to near its western junction with the B30 Newtown Road.

This significant scheme on the main road from Newry to Newtownhamilton will provide over 1km of new asphalt road surface and associated drainage improvement works.

The scheme is due to be completed by November 10.

To help ensure the safety of road users and contractors a temporary road closure will operate daily from 7am to 6pm from Wednesday, October 25 until Friday, November 10.

Diversionary routes will be signed.  Local access for residents will be maintained at all times during the scheme.

The Department for Infrastructure aims to keep disruption to a minimum, however, delays should be expected and drivers are asked to be patient and allow additional time when planning journeys in the area whilst the road improvements are being carried out.

The dates and duration of the works will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
