Road closures ahead of major £230,000 resurfacing scheme

Work is due to commence next Monday, August 7

There will be a number of road closures over a two week period for motorists as part of a major £230,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme.

The work will take place on Flush Place and Queen Street/Avenue Road, Lurgan and will commence next Monday, August 7.

The scheme will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface of the roads.

Work is expected to be completed by August 21.

The Flush Place works extend from the roundabout at Millennium Way to its junction with Queen Street/Avenue Road. The Queen Street/Avenue Road works extend from the Queen Street/Foster Place junction to the Avenue Road/ Park Avenue junction on the A3.

Road closures on Flush Place, Queen Street and Avenue Road, Lurgan will be necessary during the duration of the works, which will be in effect from 7pm to 6am to minimise traffic disruption within the town centre.

Traffic will be diverted via the M1, Lough Road, Kiln Road, Francis Street, Edward Street and Millennium Way.  Local access will be maintained at all times during the scheme.

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.

The above work is subject to favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change.
