Day-time road closure in place as Craigavon resurfacing scheme starts next month

The Clanrolla Road scheme is estimated to cost £114,000

Work is due to start early in the New Year on a resurfacing scheme at Craigavon.

The scheme – will the Departments says will deliver significant improvements to the structure and surface of the Clanrolla Road – will be carried out at a cost of £114,000.

The resurfacing works will extend a distance of approximately 1.3 kilometres from the junction of the Bluestone Road to Knockmenagh Road.

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate a daily road closure between 8am and 6pm from Monday, January 6 until Friday, January 17.

During these times a two-way diversion will be in place via Bluestone Road, Moyraverty West Road and Knockmenagh Road.

Diversionary routes will be clearly signed and local access for residents and businesses will be maintained at all times during the works. The road will be open to traffic from 6pm until 8am daily and no closure will be in place over the weekends.

A Department of Infrastructure spokesperson said: “In order to help ensure the safety of road users and road workers, the public is asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions and to drive with care when travelling through, or in the vicinity, of the works.

“The Department has programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience, however drivers should expect some delays and are advised to leave additional time when travelling in the area.”

Work is due to be completed on Friday, January 17, but is dependent on favourable weather conditions.
