£200,000 of resurfacing works in Londonderry

Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy announced the start of a £200,000 major resurfacing scheme on the A6 Foreglen Road.

The work is due to begin on Monday 26 November 2012 on the A6 Foreglen Road at its junction with the Baranailt Road near Claudy, Co. Londonderry.

The Minister said: “Benefits of scheme include the resurfacing of approximately one kilometre of the existing road which has deteriorated to such an extent that resurfacing is the only practical option. The work will ensure that the road continues to provide a viable and safe means of transportation for all that use this strategically important route.”

To help minimise any inconvenience to the travelling public and local businesses the majority of this work is programmed to be completed using off-peak lane closures between 9.30am and 4.30pm.

The off-peak lane closures will commence on 26 November and continue until 10 December. During off-peak lane closures two-way traffic flow will be maintained.

The scheme is expected to be completed by December 10.

The above planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and Roads Service will keep the public informed of any change.

Roads Service has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, however motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
