Resurfacing of Avenue Road and Belfast Road in Lurgan

Upper Bann MP Carla Lockhart has secured progress from the Department for Infrastructure towards the resurfacing of Avenue Road/Belfast Road, one of the main arterial routes into Lurgan.

Commenting, Carla Lockhart said:

“The road surfaces of both Avenue Road and Belfast Road are well below an acceptable standard for any road, let alone one with such a high volume of traffic along a main arterial route into Lurgan town centre.

For some time I have been engaging with the Department for Infrastructure with a view to securing a commitment for the resurfacing of this road. Persistence has paid off, and I am delighted that I am now in receipt of confirmation that the road will be in the future programme for resurfacing. An indicative timetable is that this will be completed in the 2023/24 financial year.

This will be overdue work, but I am delighted that the commitment is now in place. Road users will benefit from a much enhances surface, and local homeowners will also benefit from reduced noise pollution that arises from traffic volume over the poor surface.

I continue to press for further investment in local roads, and I expect to have more good news on other roads being lobbied on soon.”
