Emergency sewer work continues on Donegall Road
08 April 2011 14:21Due to unexpected ground conditions, emergency sewer repair work is still ongoing on the Donegall Road approaching Shaftesbury Square junction. Work will continue until late April 2011.
NI Water’s Project Sponsor, Keith Haslett, explains:
“NI Water’s engineers identified an urgent need to replace the sewerage network in the area and unfortunately, this work has taken longer than expected due to difficult unforeseen ground conditions.
“Once complete, this work will alleviate potential localised ‘out of sewer’ flooding. We are aware this is an extremely busy junction and have done everything in our power to maintain traffic flows around the area.”
Temporary emergency traffic flows are as follows:
”¢ Traffic flows will be restricted by a lane closure on the Donegall Road, meaning that access to the Donegall Road will be for outbound traffic only from the city centre.
”¢ Traffic heading into the city centre will be diverted through lower and upper Sandy Row.
NI Water and its contractor O’Neill Contracts would like to thank the public and traders for their patience and continued co-operation during this vital improvement work and assure them that every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum while this essential work is completed.
