Closure of N15 Southbound Lanes

FOX Contracts are expected to commence Night Works on Monday 25th November 2019 from 7:00pm to 7:00am on the N4-N15 in the vicinity of the Rosses Point & N16 (Duck Street) Junction with a proposed staged Southbound diversion of the N15 via Ballitivnan and free flow Northbound. Work are expected to continue for the next four weeks.

The details of the night-time diversion are as follows:

Monday night 25th - Tuesday night 26th 

It is expected Works will require a right turn closure to the Rosses Point Road Only.  Motorists wishing access to the Rosses point road at the N4-N15 junction will have to follow the signed diversion via Elm Gardens and the Ballytivnan Road onto the N16 at Duck Street or seek an alternative route.  North Bound and South Bound traffic will be maintained.

From Wednesday Night 27th  onwards the details of the night-time diversion are as follows:

  • Northbound traffic on the N15 will be maintained.  The closure of the N15 southbound lanes is required to facilitate the staged installation of Sewer / Drainage crossings.
  • Traffic travelling southbound on the N15 towards Sligo will be diverted via Elm Gardens and the Ballytivnan Road onto the N16 at Duck Street and back onto the N4 via the N4-N16 Junction.
  • Traffic travelling southbound on the N15 towards Sligo will be diverted via Elm Gardens and the Ballytivnan Road onto the N16 at Duck Street and back onto the N4 via the N4-N16 Junction.
  • Traffic travelling southbound on the R291 Rosses Point Road towards Sligo will be diverted northbound onto the N15 at the N15-R291 Junction, travel north along the N15 before turning right onto Elm Gardens and then travel south on Ballytivnan Road and onto the N16 at Duck Street and back onto the N4 via the N4-N16 Junction.
