Road closures on Flush Place, Queen Street and Avenue Road, Lurgan will be necessary during the duration of the works which will be in effect from 7pm to 6am to minimise traffic disruption within the town centre. Traffic will be diverted via the M1, Lough Road, Kiln Road, Francis Street, Edward Street and Millennium Way. Local access will be maintained at all times during the scheme.

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 drive with care when travelling through, or in the vicinity, of the works.

The Department has programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience, however, drivers should expect some delays and are advised to leave additional time when travelling in the area.

Work is expected to be completed by 21 August.
