The new six kilometre carriageway, will entail the construction of a single carriageway (with sections of two plus one lane carriageway) through a green field site between the A31 Moneymore Road just south of Magherafelt to the A6 Castledawson roundabout.

Costing an estimated £35million, the bypass is expected to open in the autumn.
