A £165,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the U0366 Ballynahinch Road, Crossgar will commence on Monday 7 January 2019.
The resurfacing work will extend a distance of approximately 1.1km from its junction with the B7 Ballynahinch Road to its junction with the B7 Crossgar Road. The scheme will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface of the road and improve road drainage. Preparatory work for the scheme is already underway.
Due to the nature of the works it will be necessary to operate a daily weekday road closure between the hours of 8.00 am and 6.00 pm from Monday 7 January 2019 until Friday 25 January 2019. During these times a diversion will be in place with traffic being diverted via the B7 Ballynahinch Road and B7 Crossgar Road.
Diversionary routes will be clearly signed and local access for residents will be maintained at all times during the works. The road will be open to traffic in the evenings Monday to Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday.
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 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.
Work is expected to be completed by 25 January 2019 however this will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
