A £313,000 resurfacing scheme for B94 Ballycregagh Road, Clough, is due to commence on Wednesday 25 November 2020.
The scheme extends from its junction with Springmount Road/Glenleslie Road for a distance of approximately 2.3 kilometres to its junction with Dowgry Road and is expected to be completed by Tuesday 12 January 2021.
A spokesperson said: “To facilitate the works, it will be necessary to introduce a full weekday road closure on Ballycregagh Road (Monday-Friday) between the hours of 7.00am and 6:00pm from Wednesday 25 November 2020 until Tuesday 22 December 2020 and from Wednesday 6 January 2021 to Tuesday 12 January 2021.
“During these times a diversion will be in operation via Springmount Road; Frosses Road; Lisnasoo Road and Drumbare Road (and vice versa).
“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 any alternative routes which will be clearly signed on the approaches to the works.
“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 take extra care when travelling in the vicinity of the works.
“Completion by Tuesday 12 January 2021 is dependent on favourable weather conditions, however 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.”
