A closure of Lower Road, River, is currently planned for Monday 21 December 2020, from 9.00am for up to 4 hours, with the possibility of a repeat closure the following day in the event of any difficulties.
Lower Road will be closed in the general vicinity of number 86, with no through access between the junctions with Minnis Lane and Common Lane.
The alternative route for through traffic is via Minnis Lane, Lewisham Road and Common Lane.
Lower Road will become two-way between the junctions with Minnis Lane and Common Lane, to allow essential access / exit from either direction up to where the road is closed.
Due to the nature of the works, the restrictions will need to remain in force at all times.
The closure is to enable works to be carried out to replace a sewer frame and cover in the carriageway, being carried out by Cappagh Browne Utilities, working with Southern Water.
The timing and duration of these works may be affected by various factors including the current corona virus situation, and the most up to date information on these works can be found at the following link:
