NI Water Work to Install New Sewer Gets Underway – Lisburn Sewerage Improvement Programme

05 July 2017 10:33

NI Water is preparing to commence work to install a new sewer between the Antrim Road Roundabout and Bellevue Drive on the Antrim Road, Lisburn. This is a continuation of the work, which was carried out in the area last summer. This work will commence on the 24th July 2017, and we anticipate that the work will take approximately 4 weeks to complete.

The proposed construction work will involve the laying of approximately 70m of sewer and associated manholes, and is part of an overall programme to enhance the sewerage system in the area. 

Detailed traffic management arrangements have been discussed with the Department of Infrastructure, and in order to carry out the work safely, it will be necessary to have a road closure in place between the Antrim Road roundabout and Bellevue Drive. This will be in place for the duration of the works with diversionary routes clearly signposted.

Vehicular access will be maintained for local residents but may at times be subject to short delays, pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.

Normal working hours will be 7.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday, with some work also being undertaken on Saturday mornings.

NI Water and our contractor BSG Civil Engineering would like to thank the public in advance for their patience and co-operation while we complete these essential works. We will do everything possible to reduce disruption in the area and any customer queries should be directed to Waterline on 03457 440088.
