The work involves widening, junction realignment and improved lighting on a number of junctions. It is envisaged that this work will be completed by the end of this year.

"Other schemes which have already been completed include carriageway widening on the Derryvore Lane and the Killaghy Road as well as traffic calming schemes on the Brownlow Road, Craigavon and Bachelors Walk, Portadown. These schemes are in addition to the ongoing extensive programme of smaller local transport and safety measures, as well as resurfacing and other routine maintenance works."
