As St Mary’s Junction edges closer to completion, works to resurface the junction will take place from this evening (Monday) and each evening until around 26th November.
Road closures will be in place on St Mary’s Junction from Monday 2nd until 26th November for resurfacing works.
To minimise disruption, contractors are also planning to work at night to carry out the final phase of resurfacing through the entire area during November.
These works will take place between 20:00 and 05:00 each evening which will involve both full and partial closures of the junction, depending on the works being undertaken.
During this time, it will be necessary to have in place different diversion routes depending on the scheduling of work, progress and weather conditions.
A spokesperson for Island Roads has said:
“We recognise that each phase of these works brings a different set of challenges for motorists to negotiate and we appreciate your patience while we complete these important works.
“Due to the size and nature of this scheme, the works programme is subject to change, but programme updates will continue to be issued as each phase progresses.”
