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 be facilitated at all times.
