A £207,500 carriageway resurfacing scheme on the A26 Frosses Road, Ballymoney (at Kilraughts Road Roundabout) will commence on Monday 8 November 2021.

The works will extend for a distance of approximately 0.55 kilometres and will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of the road.

Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon said:

“This significant investment for a busy stretch of the road network will provide long term benefits all who use it including businesses and residents in the area. I would like to thank the travelling public and local residents in advance for their cooperation while these much needed works are completed.”

To facilitate the works, it will be necessary to operate three road closures:

Completion of the work by 21 November 2021 is dependent on favourable weather conditions. The Department will keep the public informed of any change. All work will be carried out in line with current public health and health and safety advice, with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors.
