Major £355,000 roadworks scheme in Newtownhamilton to last six weeks

road-resurfacing roadworks

A £355,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the A25 Blaney Road, Newtownhamilton will commence on Monday, August 5.

The resurfacing work will extend a distance of approximately two kilometres from Mullaghduff Road to a point 190 metres east of Tullyvallan Hall Road.

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

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate a daily weekday road closure (Mon – Fri) between the hours of 8am and 6pm from Monday, August 5 until Friday, September 20.

During these hours a diversion will be in place via Blaney Road, Dundalk Street, Keady Road, Darkley Road, Castleblaney Road, R181, R182 , Blaney Road and vice versa.

The road will remain open to traffic in the evenings during the week and all day Saturday and Sunday.

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 work and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience, however, road users should expect some delays and are advised to leave additional time when planning any journeys.

Completion of the work by 20 September will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
