Major resurfacing scheme to begin on Portadown Road in Tandragee

A27 Portadown Road in Tandragee

A resurfacing scheme for the A27 Portadown Road in Tandragee will begin next week, on Monday, November 20.

The improvement work will extend for 1.1 kilometres from the Mullavilly Road Roundabout to the Ballyknock Road junction and includes resurfacing with upgrading of road drainage and footway repairs.

To help ensure the safety of those using the road and to facilitate the works it will be necessary to operate road closures, including weekends, from 9.15am to 4.30pm, commencing Monday, November 20 until Sunday, December 3.

An alternative route will be signed with traffic being diverted via the B78 Markethill Road, A51 Marlacoo Road and A51 Armagh Road.

Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained although some minor delays may be experienced.

The Department has carefully planned these road works and associated traffic management arrangements in order to minimise inconvenience to the public.

Road users are advised to allow extra time for their journey and to follow the alternative routes which will be clearly signed on the approaches to the closure.

Completion of the work by 3 December 2023 is dependent on favourable weather conditions.  The Department will keep the public informed of any change.  All work will be carried out in line with current public health and safety advice, with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors.
