The road closures will be in operation Monday to Friday, from 8pm until 7am, between Monday, July 23 and Saturday, August 11.

Diversions will be clearly signposted and local access maintained.

A Department spokesperson said: “Some delays can be expected however and additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.

“The planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change.”

The following traffic diversions will be in place:

Castleblayney bound traffic travelling from Armagh will be diverted along Irish Street, Monaghan Road, Madden Road, Lagan Road and Derrynoose Road.
