Published: 28 November, 2016

Sinn Féin Mid Tyrone councillor Barry McNally has welcomed an investment of £190,000 in the Termon Road, Carrickmore. The road works will take place between the junction of Quarry road and running right up to the Creggan Road turnoff in Carrickmore town. Commenting on the work councillor McNally said: "I welcome the resurfacing work on the Termon Road, I have lobbied TransportNI on the poor condition of this road for some time and I know it has been an issue of concern to residents and businesses locally. Having spoken to TransportNI officials in recent days it is my understanding that the Termon Road will benefit from resurfacing and associated works which will conclude in early January. Whilst work will to commence on Monday 28th November most of this work will be supplementary work including things such as drainage. The actual resurfacing of the road is not due to take place until early in January. "I had raised concerns of local people about the length of time for the work, and especially the fact that it will take place over Christmas. However I'm assured by TransportNI that, whilst supplementary work will conclude in advance of Christmas, the resurfacing work will take place after the Christmas period, ensuring that the road will remained largely unaffected over Christmas. "Nevertheless, the work will require the road to be closed for a period to accommodate the resurfacing work and diversions will be put in pace. However, TransportNI cannot, at this time, be more precise about the actual dates, bit these will be publicised closer to the time.
