£6.5 million investment to get underway in South Armagh
21 January 2011 11:40NI Water is pleased to announce that a £6.5million Water Mains Improvement Programme is scheduled to get underway in the Newtownhamilton, Cullyhanna, Crossmaglen and Silverbridge areas of South Armagh. Work will get underway in early February 2011 and is expected to continue until approximately June 2012. The work will involve replacing almost 100km of water mains within this Newry and Mourne District Council area.
This work is part of a £100m programme to upgrade the water main infrastructure throughout Northern Ireland over a five year period. The project will dramatically improve the quality, reliability and flexibility of water supply across Northern Ireland while also reducing leakage.
NI Water and our contractor Farrans Utilities would like to thank the public in advance for their co-operation during this vital improvement work and every effort will be made to keep any disruption to a minimum. Relevant signage will be in place well in advance regarding any traffic diversions.
