Motorists are being advised of a significant oil spill on the Portadown Road coming out of Armagh this morning (Wednesday).
A number of motorists have contacted Armagh I in an effort to warn others of what has been described as “treacherous” conditions.
One man, who later pulled off for Richhill, close to the Fruitfield Filling Station, said the road is covered in oil.
He added that “two council vans lost control but thankfully never hit anyone; they were only going at 40mph.”
It is understood the oil spill continues on out towards Stonebridge on the Dobbin Road.
Last night the PSNI closed the Dobbin Road between Armagh and Portadown for a number of hours.
There was no reason given for the closure before it was re-opened in the early hours of this morning.
