THE main Fivemiletown to Clogher road is set to benefit from a £370,000 resurfacing scheme.
A major resurfacing scheme has commenced on the A4 Ballagh Road at Kiltermon on the undertaking climbing lane.
This investment aims to improve the strength and surface quality of this busy road and address ongoing maintenance problems.
Road markings at the top of the climbing lane will also be revised as part of the scheme.
Works started on Monday August 12th 2019 and will continue until Monday August 26th and motorists are warned to expect delays.
To facilitate the works a lane closure with a 10mph speed limit and a “please follow me” convoy system will be in operation for the duration of the works.
A spokesman for the Roads Agency said “Completion of the works will be subject to favourable weather conditions and the
public will be kept informed of any change.
“Motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.”

Hold-ups on the way in Ballyconnell
By Linda Surphlis
DRIVERS have been advised to prepare for possible delays due to roadworks on one of the main approach roads to Ballyconnell.
The N87 road runs from Belturbet through Ballyconnell and on to Swanlinbar. Resurfacing is underway from Daisy Hill to Main Street. Cavan County Council have advised that work is anticipated to last up to six weeks, approximately completed for Friday 13 September.
Stop-go traffic controls are operational daily from 9.15am – 4.45pm daily.
Night time road closures will also be in affect from 8pm to 6am. While works are carried out diversions will be signposted with local access only.
Councillor Chris McCaffrey said that the resurfacing of
the road is part of scheduled works.
He added, “I would welcome the work that is being carried out, it’s long over due and will help improve the roads in the border area.”
