Road Service information on Moy-Armagh Road roadworks

Roads Service has advised motorists travelling to Armagh that there will be a one way lane closure from Moy to Armagh until March 1st.

A diversion will be in place via B28 Collegelands Road and the B77 Loughgall Road.

The works are part of a major £300,000 scheme to introduce a right turning lane and resurfacing scheme on the A29 Armagh Road/C185 Charlemont Road junction.

The aim of the scheme is to provide traffic with a right turning facility for vehicles coming from the Moy/Portadown direction heading to Blackwatertown and also to improve the existing carriageway surface on the A29 Armagh Road.

A spokesperson for Roads Service said: “We have made every effort to minimise inconvenience to motorists while these works are being undertaken and as a result we have been able to reduce the length of time the lane will close.

“The one-way closure was expected to start in January and last until mid-March but by managing the works it will start on 20 February and will continue until 1 March.”

The above planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and Roads Service will keep the public informed of any change.

Roads Service has carefully programmed the works operations and traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public.

However, motorists should be aware that some delays may be expected and that additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.

Due to the one way closure in the area businesses are advised to use the alternative routes which are signposted.
