Inland Road Recovery work

NCTIR have advised us that explosive charges will be detonated at their Conway Bluff work site as part of their rock stabilization programme to dislodge and clear the unstable material from the rock face.
This ‘blasting work’ is a plannned event and is scheduled for Friday, the 18th of August between the hours of 12 noon and 5pm. This will be followed by sluicing and scaling on Saturday and Sunday to remove loose rock with an expected end date of Monday (21 August).
- Nearby residents will hear the blasting noise and feel ground vibrations.
- Drivers will be delayed for up to an hour at each end of the Bluff.
NCTIR would like to thank you for your continued patience and understanding while this essential work is underway. Please contact them via email ( or call 0800 628 4737 if their work is causing problems for you, as they are committed to resolving issues wherever possible.
