Road Works will continue on the N16 Manorhamilton Road between the Abbvie Roundabout and the Regional Stores. 

The works include the upgrading of the existing road pavement with some footpath and drainage works.  These works are now at a critical phase which necessitates a significant traffic diversion for cars and light goods vehicles travelling towards Sligo on the N16. 

This traffic will be diverted off the N16 at Doonally Cross and directed towards Sligo via Rathbraughan Line, the Old Bundoran Road and Ballytivnan Road.  HGV’s will be allowed to continue to use the N16, but will experience varying delays as they approach the works.  Delays are inevitable on all approaches to these works and motorists are advised to take alternative routes where possible. 

Resurfacing of the junction of The Manorhamilton Road / Ash Lane / Molloway Hill / The Dromahair Road will take place during the evening and night of Wednesday May 9th and Thursday May 10th.  These works will cause major disruption locally, and the junction should be avoided if possible.
