United Kingdom : Update on road improvement scheme on Irish Street, Armagh.

Preparatory work for road and footway resurfacing from the Monaghan Road to St. Malachy s Church at Irish Street, Armagh continues to progress well.

Following discussion between Roads Service and Firmus Energy it has been agreed to take the opportunity to install a new gas main at the same time as the road works.

Work on the gas main will be carried out using temporary traffic signals between 22 and 27 April and thereafter in conjunction with the on-going road and footway repairs. This will minimise future disruption to the public whilst enhancing both road and service infrastructures in Armagh.

The lane closure in operation currently will be suspended over the Easter period from Thursday 17 April allowing full access to businesses during this busy time. One way lane closures will become necessary again on the 28 April until the 24 May however the road will be open fully over both the May Bank Holiday weekend and for the Giro D'Italia cycle race (3-5 and 10-11 May).

Consideration is also being given to the most appropriate direction of any single lane closures that will be necessary on Irish Street in order to reduce the impact on roads users, local businesses, schools and residences and details will follow when finalised. It has also been confirmed that full road closures to facilitate the laying of the final road surfaces are likely to be only necessary on Sundays 18 and 25 May.

During the lane closures access for local residents, local businesses and schools will be available one way or via the diversion route although every effort is being made to allow two way access between St Malachy s Church and Dalton Road. It should be appreciated that some delays can be expected and should be planned for. Road users are also advised to adhere to road closures and direction signs at all times and to cooperate with site personnel in the interests of safety whilst these works are being carried out.
