Main road set to close on Monday September 9 for £230,000 resurfacing scheme

The Magheramore Road.

A £230,000 resurfacing scheme on the Magheramore Road – the main road between Armoy and Ballycastle – is due to start on Monday September 9.

The scheme will extend a distance of approximately 2.5 kilometres from the Lagge Road Junction to the Islandarragh Road junction.

Roads chiefs say that due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate a road closure southbound between the hours of 7.30am and 6.30pm from Monday 9 September until Sunday 29 September.

During these times a diversion will be in place via B67 Moyarget Road – B147 Carrowreagh Road/Main Street, Armoy and vice versa. The road will be open outside of the times stipulated.

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 Department says it has carefully programmed the work operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience, however, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the area.

Completion of works by 29 September will be dependent on favourable weather conditions, the Department said.
