Work is expected to be completed by mid-December 2013.

Minister Kennedy said: “This £187,000 scheme represents a significant investment in the roads infrastructure in the Saintfield area. 

“Once work is complete, road users will quickly realise the long term benefits from the new road surface.”

Temporary road closure will be necessary with through-traffic being diverted from 8.00am to 6.00pm daily from Monday 18 November to mid December excluding Sundays. Diversions will be via the B6 Killyleagh Road, B6 Station Road and the U372 Carsonstown Road.

Roads Service aims to keep disruptions to a minimum, however, delays should be expected and drivers are asked to be patient and allow additional time when planning journeys in the area.

With all work of this nature extreme weather can impact on the scheduled date. Roads Service will advise the public of any unexpected change to the schedule.
