Transport Minister Danny Kennedy has today (Friday) announced the start of a £150,000 road improvement scheme in Portadown, Co Armagh.
Resurfacing work on 500metres of West Street, Portadown between Corcrain Road and Brownstown Road will start on Monday, January 20. The scheme will also include the resurfacing of the Loughgall Road roundabout.
The Minister said: “Road users will benefit from the overall strengthening of the road structure and an improved carriageway surface.”
During the work which will continue until Tuesday, February 4, West Street will be closed to through traffic. Traffic will be diverted via Corcrain Road and Charles Street.
To facilitate the resurfacing of the roundabout at the junction of West Street and Brownstown Road, it will be subject to a road closure from 6pm on Friday, January 31, until 8pm on Tuesday, February 4. Through traffic will be diverted via Coharra Road, Moy Road, Charles Street and Corcrain Road.
The various diversion routes will be clearly signed for the assistance of the public and access to the area will be maintained for residents.
Roads Service and the Contractor will make every effort to minimise inconvenience and would ask that the public exercise caution and patience whilst the works are in progress.
As with all works of this nature planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and Roads Service will keep the public informed of any unavoidable change.
