A £209,000 carriageway and footway resurfacing scheme for Nursery Avenue and Terrace Row is due to commence today ( Monday 27 July 2020 ).
The scheme, extends from Lodge Road for approximately 570 metres to the junction with Mountsandel Road and is expected to be completed by Saturday 29 August 2020.
The footpaths which run adjacent to the carriageway will also be resurfaced to enhance the provision for pedestrians.
To facilitate the works it will be necessary to introduce a lane closure on Nursery Avenue and Terrace Row, between the hours of 7.30 am and 6.00 pm from Monday 27 July 2020 until Saturday 29 August 2020.
The Department has carefully planned these road works and associated traffic management arrangements in order to minimise inconvenience to the public. Road users are advised to allow extra time for their journey and to follow the alternative routes which will be clearly signed on the approaches to the works.
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 take extra care when travelling in the vicinity of the works.
Completion by 29 August 2020 is dependent on favourable weather conditions however the Department will keep the public informed of any change. All work will be carried out in line with current public health and safety advice with safe systems of working in place for staff and contractors.
