A £180k road resurfacing scheme is scheduled to start in Belleeks village this Monday 18 February. 

The resurfacing work will extend a distance of approximately 530m, between the gateway entry signs to the village. The Department for Infrastructure 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 weekday road closure between the hours of 9.00 am and 4.30 pm from Monday 18 February until Friday 22 February.

During these times a diversion will be in place via A25 Newtown Road/Newry Road / B134 Mountain Road / B30 Crossmaglen Road/ Newry Road/Silverbridge Road / A29 New Road/Dundalk Road/Dundalk Street/Armagh Street / B78 Markethill Road / A25 Newry Road and vice versa.

The road will be open to traffic in the evenings during the week and all day Saturday and Sunday.

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.

It is expected work will be completed by 22 February however this will be dependent on the progress of the scheme and on favourable weather conditions.
