A £385,000 resurfacing scheme on the Carnlough Road, Broughshane, will start on Monday 16 September.
The scheme which extends from 600 metres west of Loughloughan Road for 2.7 kilometres towards Carnlough, will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface of the road, say road chiefs.
Work is expected to be completed by Friday 25 October 2019.
Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to introduce a temporary speed limit with traffic controlled by the use of a convoy system through the works site.
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.
The dates and duration of the works will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
