Two weeks of resurfacing work begin this Monday, October 10th on the Trunk Road tetwork at the A32 Enniskillen Road in Ballinamallard.
The £150,000 resurfacing scheme will affect an estimated 7,000 road users who use the key route between Omagh and Enniskillen every day. Patients attending the South West Acute Hospital will also be affected by the works.
Motorists should be aware that delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning their journeys.
The works will be carried out under road closures between 8am to 6pm from Monday to Friday. Enniskillen bound traffic will be diverted via Ballinamallard while Irvinestown bound traffic will be diverted via Lisnarick. Signed diversions will be in operation and local access will be maintained.
Works on the 1,000 metre scheme at Kilgortnaleague are due to be completed on Friday, October 21st.
Announcing the work, the Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard said the investment would greatly improve the surface quality of the carriageway.
“The growth of our economy depends on having good infrastructure in place to meet the needs of our people. The benefits of the upgrade to the A32 Enniskillen Road will go towards helping meet these needs and improving transport connections for people, goods and services.”
As with all improvement schemes of this type the planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and TransportNI says it will keep the public informed of any change.
