A section of the Rathkeel Road near Broughshane is to be resurfaced.

A £161,000 resurfacing scheme on the Rathkeel Road, Broughshane, will start on Monday 25 February.

The scheme, which extends from the Lisnamurrican Road junction for 1.2 kilometres towards Lisnahilt Road, will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface of the road, a roads spokesperson said.

Work is expected to be completed by 15 March 2019. To ensure the safety of road users and contractors it will be necessary to operate a full road closure for the duration of the work. Access for residents will be facilitated.

A two-way diversion will be in operation on the following roads from 7:00am to 6:00pm, Monday to Friday, for the duration of the works – Caherty Road – Deerfin Road – Rathkeel Road.

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.

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.
