A Pound 137,000 resurfacing scheme on the Burn Road, Ballynahinch will commence on Monday 29 November 2021.
The resurfacing scheme, which stretches from the B2 Dromore Road to the B177 Ballynahinch Road for 2.1 km will deliver significant benefits for road users and should be fully completed by 14 January 2022.
Minister Mallon said:
"This significant investment will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of this section of the road network to the benefit of local residents and those who travel through the area. I would like to thank the public and local residents in advance for their cooperation and ask that they comply with all temporary traffic restrictions while these much needed works are completed."
To facilitate the works it will be necessary to implement weekday road closures for the duration of the works from Monday 29 November until Friday 14 January between the hours of 8.00 am and 6.00 pm. During these times a signed diversionary route will be in place using Dromore Road - Riverside Road - Ballynahinch Road and vice versa. Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained at all times.
The Department has programmed the work operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise inconvenience, however, road users should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the vicinity of the works and are asked to comply with all temporary traffic restrictions.
Subject to favourable weather conditions all work will be completed by 14 January 2022, however, 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.
