Motorists hoping for a clear run on the N11 will, once again, face traffic delays as roadworks are to be carried out on the section from Ferrycarrig to Kyle Cross for the next ten weeks.
Major Resurfacing works will see a Stop/Go traffic management system in place from now until Friday, March 29. The works will take place between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. with major delays expected at peak times.
The council is urging people to use alternative routes if possible. They have also warned that the works are weather dependent, stating that both the working hours and completion date may be subject to change.
Lines of cones and the portable traffic lights are something that regular users of the road have become accustomed to over the past two years as it has been subject to a number of prolonged periods of work.
In 2017, roadworks just south of Oylegate ran for over a month from early November into December. Shortly after that, in April 2018, 12 weeks of work began on a major redesign of Kyle Cross.
Following that, further works were carried out on the Ferrycarrig to Kyle route which lasted for 13 weeks and ran right up to Christmas week 2018. The current works are also relating to that route.
