Belfast Road Newry set to close to traffic as part of £300k resurfacing scheme

Motorists are being advised to expect some delays due to the commencement of a £300,000 resurfacing scheme on the Belfast Road, Newry,

The Department of Infrastructure announced the works would extend a distance of approximately 800 metres from its junction with Mourne Country roundabout to Maurice Murphy Car Sales

A spokesperson for the Department of Infrastructure, said: "To facilitate the works it will be necessary to operate a full road closure from Monday June 29 2020 until Sunday August 30 2020 for southbound traffic and introduce a temporary one-way arrangement for northbound traffic.

"A signed diversion will be in place for vehicles travelling southbound. Cars and Light Commercial Vehicles are being diverted via Carnbane Way, Armagh Road, Canal Street, and Downshire Road.

"Heavy Good Vehicles are being diverted via Dublin Road and Bridge Street.

"The Department has carefully planned these road works and associated traffic management arrangements in order to minimise inconvenience to the public.

"Road users are advised to allow extra time for their journey and to follow the alternative routes which will be clearly signed on the approaches to the works.

"Completion of the scheme by August  30 2020 is dependent on favourable weather conditions however the Department will keep the public informed of any change. 

"All work will be carried out in line with current public health and health and safety advice, with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors."
