£275,000 resurfacing scheme on main road in south Armagh

A £275,000 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the A37 Concession Road, Culloville will commence on Monday, August 6.

The resurfacing work will extend a distance of approximately 1.6 kilometres from the speed limit signs at Cullaville to Ballynacarry Bridge at the border with Co Monaghan.

The scheme will deliver significant improvements to both the structural integrity and surface of the road.

Due to the nature of the scheme it will be necessary to operate a daily road closure between the hours of 8am and 6pm from Monday, August 6 until Friday, August 24.

During these times a diversion will be in place via A37 Concession Road, N53, M1, N52, N2, Castleblaney, N53 and vice versa.

Diversionary routes will be clearly signed and local access for residents will be maintained at all times during the works.

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 August 24, however this will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
