Project Description:

The A32 between Omagh and Enniskillen is classified as a Trunk Road within the Regional Strategic Transport Network. On the existing route overtaking opportunities are limited and as a result, journey times tend to be unpredictable. The construction of a new hospital in Enniskillen will include an Accident & Emergency service to the Omagh area and traffic volumes along the route are expected to increase. Roads Service has developed a strategy for improving the A32 route between Omagh and Enniskillen. The strategy proposes a programme of both ‘on-line’ and ‘off-line’ improvement schemes to modern single carriageway standards with improved overtaking opportunities. The programme includes the delivery in the short to medium term, of a number of schemes at Mullaghbane, Shannaragh, Esker Bog, Cornamuck, New Park, Sidaire, Drumbulcan, Kilgortnaleague. The contract for A32 Drumskinny was awarded to Fox Contracts in August 2011. It was substantial complete in March 2012. The contract for the A32 Shannaragh Realignment, was awarded on 27 January 2012 to a joint venture between Whitemountain Quarries Ltd and Coffey Construction Ltd. The new carriageway was officially opened by the Minister Danny Kennedy on 13th February 2013.
