A £260,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the Drones Road is due to start on Monday November 4.
The resurfacing work will comprise two sections with a combined length of approximately 2.1 kilometres, from Kilraughts Road junction towards Armoy.
The scheme will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface quality of the road and continues the Department’s commitment to improving this road over recent years, officials say.
Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate daily road closures between the hours of 7.30am and 5.30pm from Monday 4 November until Sunday 17 November.
During these times a diversion will be in place via Gracehill Road – Kilraughts Road – Pharis Road and vice versa. The road will be open outside of the times stipulated.
The Department has programmed the work operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise inconvenience, however, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the area.
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 extra care when travelling in the vicinity of the works.
Completion of the works by 17 November is dependent on favourable weather conditions. The Department will keep the public informed of any changes.
