Major resurfacing scheme to close Portadown road for one month in New Year

A £167,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on Princess Way, Portadown will commence on Monday, January 6.

The resurfacing works will extend a distance of approximately 700 metres from the junction of Killicomaine Road to Edenderry Primary School. On completion, 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 road closure between the hours of 9.30am and 4.30pm from Monday, January 6 to Friday, February 7.

During these times a two-way diversion will be in place via Killicomaine Road, Gilford Road and Princess Way.

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 4:30pm until 9:30am daily and throughout the weekends.

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.

Completion of the work by Friday 7 February 2020 is dependent on favourable weather conditions. The Department will keep the public informed of any change.
