A £150,000 resurfacing and reconstruction scheme will start today, Monday, August 12, on the B521 Glengalliagh Road in Derry.
The scheme, which starts at Bradley’s Pass and progresses south westwards for a distance of 500 metres, will greatly improve the strength and surface quality of the road.
A Department spokesperson said: “To facilitate the resurfacing it will be necessary to implement a full road closure from Monday to Saturday between the hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm.
“A diversion will be clearly signed via A515 Skeoge Road and Bradley’s Pass.
2Access to the Northside Shopping Centre for patrons and deliveries will be maintained.
“The Department has carefully planned the work to minimise disruption, however, road users should expect some delays and additional time should be allowed when planning any journeys.
“Completion of the work by August 24 is subject to favourable weather conditions.
“The Department will keep the public informed if there is any change.”
