Mid Tyrone Sinn Féin Councillor Sean Clarke has welcomed a £300,000 Gortin Road Improvement scheme beginning on Monday 3rd March but has urged drivers to be aware of diversions.

Councillor Clarke said,

"This much needed £300,000 improvement scheme in road surfacing will help enhance the carriageway and help improve road safety on the main B48 Gortin Road. Omagh is a growing, bustling town and the Gortin Road leading into the town is regularly at gridlock at rush hour, all improvements must be welcomed as combined they will assist in alleviating the traffic congestion."

"As with all infrastructural enhancing projects, they come with the necessary road diversions and drivers should be aware that these will be in place from 7am until 5pm from Monday 10th March to Friday 15th March."

Diversions will be in place at; Edenbrack Road, Old Mountfield Road, Mountjoy Road with traffic diverted via B48 Sedan Avenue, B48 Derry Road, A5 Beltany Road, B46 Plumbridge Road, B46 Killymore Road.

Sedan Avenue traffic will be diverted via B48 Drumragh Avenue, B48 Dublin Road, A5 Gt Northern On Slip, A5 Gt Northern Road, A5 Beltany Road, B46 Plumbridge Road, and B46 Killymore Road.

Omagh bound traffic will be diverted via C614 Gortnagarn Road, A5 Beltany Road, B48 Derry Road, and B48 Sedan Avenue. Local access is maintained during the scheme.
