Sewer Improvement Work to Get Underway in Ladybrook, Belfast

15 February 2012 9:49

NI Water is pleased to announce that an essential sewer improvement programme is about to commence in the Ladybrook area of West Belfast on Monday 5th March 2012. Approximately £550,000 will be invested in this programme of work, which will last approximately 8 months.

A lot of the current sewerage infrastructure is beginning to deteriorate, causing pipes to collapse and increasing the risk of out of sewer flooding in the area. Therefore, it is essential that this work to replace the pipes is completed as soon as possible.

When complete, the project will improve the local sewerage infrastructure and wastewater services in the area. The majority of this work will also be completed using trenchless or “low dig” underground technology, which is less disruptive for the local community and environmentally friendly, using less waste material in the process.

Before this work gets underway, NI Water will be holding an information event for the public on Friday 24th February, 3-7pm at St Michael’s Parish Centre, Finaghy Road North. This will be an opportunity for the residents affected to call in at any stage and get further information on the scheme.

NI Water and its contractor, Biwater Graham JV, would like to thank the public in advance for their patience and cooperation, and assure them that we will do everything we can to complete this essential work as quickly as possible.

Customer queries regarding this work should be directed to Waterline on 08457 440088.
