Newry Road improvement Scheme For Mayobridge


Newry Road improvement Scheme For Mayobridge

A £365,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on Newry Road, Mayobridge will commence on Monday 28 September 2020. 

The improvement work will extend a distance of approximately 1.2 kilometres from its junction with the Ryan Road to the introduction of the 30mph signs at the Newry side of Mayobridge.

The scheme includes resurfacing of the carriageway and upgrading of road drainage.

To facilitate the works, it will be necessary to operate a daily weekday road closure (Monday – Friday) between the hours of 9.30am and 4.30pm from Monday 28 September until Friday 13 November 2020. 

During these times a diversion will be in place with traffic being diverted via Newry Road, Bavan Road, Drumlough Road, Iveagh Bungalows, Rathfriland Road, Newry Road and vice versa.

The road will be open to traffic in the evenings during the week and all day Saturday and Sunday. Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained at all times.

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 the alternative routes which will be clearly signed on the approaches to the closure.

Completion of the work by 13 November 2020 is dependent on favourable weather conditions. The Department will keep the public informed of any change.

All work will be carried out in line with current public health and health and safety advice, with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors.
