Christmas shoppers and other commuters heading to Enniskillen over the coming weeks face further traffic headaches and lengthy waits as resurfacing work is set to commence on the A46 Lough Shore Road.
The works come as Enniskillen traders welcome the latest influx of southern shoppers to Fermanagh but this has already led to tailbacks throughout the town at various times during the day.
The £358,000 scheme on the Enniskillen to Belleek road begins this Monday (7 November) and is due to be completed by Friday 25 November.
The work involves resurfacing of a 1.28 kilometre section of the road at Carrickreagh at a cost of approximately £145,000 and 1.845 kilometres at Cosbytown costing an estimated £213,000. The work is expected to be completed within four weeks.
TransportNI has planned the works and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience but say that as with all improvement schemes of this type, the planned date is subject to favourable weather conditions.
Traffic diversions will be in place. Drivers are warned to expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the area.
