Transport Minister Danny Kennedy has announced the start of a £122,000 major resurfacing scheme on the A28 Armagh Road at Newry.
The work is due to start between Lisummon Road and Jockeys Brae.
The Minister said: “The scheme will improve the quality of the road surface and improve the drainage on this stretch of road.”
To help minimise any inconvenience to the public and local businesses all the work is programmed to be completed using a 40mph temporary speed restriction from which will be in place until January 31, when the scheme is expected to be completed.
The above planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and TransportNI will keep the public informed of any change.
TransportNI has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public.
Motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
