West Tyrone Sinn Féin -- Building an Ireland of Equals

Welcome for Sixmilecross road works

Published: 22 October, 2014

Local Mid Tyrone Sinn Féin Councillor Sean Donnelly has welcomed a road improvements scheme set to begin in the next week in Sixmilecross and Beragh area. The Cooley road linking the two villages is set to benefit from a £90,000 investment in resurfacing work set to begin on Wednesday 29th October.

Speaking earlier this week Councillor Donnelly said the work will complement the work carried out last year on the Bridge and road widening project at the entrance to Beragh. Councillor Donnelly said:

"I very much welcome the announcement that the resurfacing project on the Cooley road will begin in the next week. It is my understanding that the resurfacing works will be carried out on the stretch of road between Patricks Road and Altamuskin Road on the main Cooley road. It is anticipated that the roadworks will last for only a few days and set to be completed by Monday 3 November.

"This resurfacing work will complement the road widening scheme and bridge replacement carried out at the entrance to Beragh last year, which is on the same stretch of road. It will also greatly increase the structure of the road and is consistent with other similar works on the Cooley road between Carrickmore and Sixmilecross just over a year ago.

To help ensure the safety of road users and contractors a full closure of the B46 Cooley Road will be in place from 8am on Wednesday 29 October to 6pm on Monday 3 November.
