Fermanagh Watermains Rehab Continues
31 March 2017 12:04
NI Water is completing significant water mains rehabilitation work in the Rossory area of Fermanagh, which includes replacing a section of water main along Old Rossory Road.
The total investment is worth some £2.8 million, and once complete, this investment will improve the quality, security and reliability of the local water supply, ensuring that NI Water continues to deliver what matters for customers in County Fermanagh into the future.
Works on the Old Rossory Road itself are nearing completion, and Drumee Road is closed to through traffic, although access for local residents is being maintained at all times. Access to Drumee Landfill and Recycling Centre is via Monea Road until such times as the traffic restrictions on Drumee Road are lifted, which is expected to be in late April.
This road closure will largely impact on vehicles travelling with an intention to by-pass Enniskillen town via the B81 Monea Road and A4 Sligo Road. Motorists in the area who would normally use the B81 Ashwoods Road and Drumee Road for this purpose are advised to travel through Enniskillen, utilising the A46 Shore Road past the ‘Round O’ and along the A4 Sligo Road from the bridges and vice versa.
Approximately another two weeks of essential watermains rehabilitation work will follow on the Monea Road – any traffic restrictions and diversions will be signposted.
We are most grateful to local residents and commuters for their patience while this essential work is completed. Every effort is being made to conclude these works as quickly as possible. Customers with queries or concerns in relation to this scheme should contact NI Water via Waterline by dialling 03457 440088.
