Temporary Closing Of Roads
Monaghan County Council gives notice to close the following road in the Municipal
District of Monaghan in County Monaghan:
Date & Time of Closure:
Monday July 29th 08.00 to Friday August 30th 0.00 2019
Completing construction of the new side road along with installation of services, pavement and finishing works on the side road and the adjacent N2
L5250 Mullaghpeak Road where it joins the N2
Via N2 to L5260 Drumcaw Road and L5250 Mullaghpeak Road.
The closure will take place in the townland of Gortmoney, with the diversion route extending from Gortmoney to Corracrin, Lelgonnelly, Drumgaghan, Belderg, Skinnagin, Drumcaw and Legacurry townlands.
The L5250 Mullaghpeak Road will be closed for approximately 100 metres where it joins the N2. The closure is required to allow reconstruction of the Mullaghpeak Road where it joins the new N2 Road alignment scheme currently under construction. There will be no through traffic between the N2 and the L5250Mullaghpeak Road during the closure, however the remainder of L5250 Mullaghpeak Road will remain open to local traffic only for residents and businesses along the road.
Vehicles travelling North along the N2 will no longer be able to turn right at the junction between the N2 & L5250 Mullaghpeak Road – instead vehicles will need to proceed South along the N2 to the L5260 Drumcaw Road turn-off, and turn left onto the L5260 Drumcaw Road. Continue on this road for 1.1 miles (1.8 km) to L5250 Road. Turn Left onto L5250
and proceed North along the L5250 for 0.8 miles (1.3 km). This will be the end of the diversion route.
Vehicles travelling South along the N2 will no longer be able to turn left at the junction between the N2 & L5250 Mullaghpeak Road – instead vehicles will need to proceed South approximately 1.75 miles (2.8 km) and turn left onto the L5260 Drumcaw Road and follow the diversion as outlined above.
Local access will be maintained along the L5250 Mullaghpeak Road for residents and businesses, although there will be no through access onto the N2. Residents will need to use the diversion route via the L5260 Drumcaw Road and the N2.
Emergency vehicles will also need to use the diversion route. We will make every effort to escort emergency vehicles through the closure to facilitate their access onto L5250Mullaghpeak Road during the closure works, however our ability to do this will be governed by what stage the construction of the new road is in at the time – if there are significant differences in level between the two which would not allow us to facilitate passage of emergency vehicles through the closure then they would need to proceed
along the diversion route.
