£300,000 Road Scheme From Hilltown Starts

£300,000 road improvement scheme on Newry Road between Mayobridge and Hilltown. 

A £300,000 road improvement scheme on the B8 Newry Road at the Ballydoo and Edentrumly Road junctions has started.

The work, which will improve the road alignment and increase visibility for traffic exiting the junctions, is expected to be completed in eight to ten weeks.

To ensure the safety of site personnel and the travelling public temporary traffic lights will be used and some delays can be expected.

Road closures will be required towards the end of the project to facilitate final resurfacing works and the dates for these will be confirmed closer to the time.

The works operations and traffic management arrangements have been carefully programmed in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, however motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
