Transport Minister Danny Kennedy has announced the start of advanced works on the £65 million A26 dualling scheme in Northern Ireland.

The advanced works which start on 27 January, include site clearance, the removal of vegetation, the erection of the site boundary fence and archaeological investigations. The works will be carried out by Patrick Bradley & Sons.

Commenting on the works, the Minister (pictured) said: “These advanced site clearance works are vitally important for the progression of the A26 dualling as they will allow the Department to secure the scheme’s site boundary and carry out archaeological investigations along the scheme prior to contract award.”

The A26 is being dualled between Glarryford and Drones Road. It is anticipated that construction of the dual carriageway will commence towards the end of this year.
