A programme of resurfacing work is set to get underway in the County Antrim town of Dunloy.

The Department for Infrastructure is investing £83,000 to improve the footway and carriageway on Bellaghy Road.

Extending 185 metres along Bellaghy Road from the new Killimorrie Park to its junction at New Road, this project involves the installation of a new 2.5m footway, improvement of sight lines, resurfacing of the carriageway and upgrading of drainage.

Work will begin on Monday 29 November, with a number of localised lane closures in place on weekdays from 8am until 6pm for 10 weeks. Local access for residents and emergency services will be maintained at all times.

Road users should expect some delays and are advised to allow additional time when travelling in the area.

Welcoming the scheme, Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon said: "I am pleased that the new pavement being delivered by this scheme in Dunloy will greatly enhance provision for pedestrians. The investment will also improve the strength and surface quality of this section of Bellaghy Road, to the benefit of local residents and those who travel through the area.

"I would like to thank the public and local residents in advance for their cooperation and ask that they comply with all temporary traffic restrictions while these much needed works are completed."
