£196,000 road improvement scheme on Grove Road, Spa, Ballynahinch.

A £196,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the Grove Road, Spa will start on Monday 7 October 2019. 

Roadworks begin on Monday 7 October.

The resurfacing work will extend a distance of approximately 1,000 metres from the Spa Road junction to 800 metres to Spa side of the Grove Road/Mountview Road junction. The scheme will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface of the road and will improve road drainage.

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate a daily weekday road closure Monday – Friday between the hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm from Monday 7 October to Friday 28 October and Monday18 November to Friday 29 November. 

During these times a diversion will be in place with traffic being diverted via Grove Road, Dromore Road / Dromore Street, A24 Church Street / Church Road and Spa Road. The road will be open to traffic in the evenings during the week and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Diversionary routes will be clearly signed and local access for residents will be maintained at all times during 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 drive with care when travelling through, or in the vicinity of, the works.

The Department has carefully programmed the work and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience, however, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to leave additional time when planning any journeys.

Completion of the work by 29 November 2019 is dependent on favourable weather conditions. The Department will keep the public informed of any change.
