TRAFFIC AND TRAVEL NEWS: Glenshane Road to close for essential repair works this weekend

A road improvement scheme will take place on the A6 Glenshane Road on Sunday, October 28 to allow for essential repairs in preparation for the winter period. In order to facilitate the work, the road will be closed between the hours of 7am and 6pm from its junction with Mullagh Road to the Castledawson Roundabout. For traffic travelling towards Belfast a diversion will be signposted via Mullagh Road, Carricknakielt Road, Knockloughrim Link Road and Hillhead Road. For traffic travelling towards Derry a diversion will be signposted via Castledawson Road, Church Street, Union Road, Hospital Road,  Magherafelt Road and Tobermore Road. The Department has carefully planned these works and associated traffic management arrangements in order to minimise any inconvenience to the public, however, road users should expect some delays and allow additional time when planning any journeys. The works are subject to favourable weather conditions and the Department will keep the public informed of any change. The Department apologies for any inconvenience this road closure may cause.
