Water Mains Improvement Work Gets Underway – Rashee Rd Ballyclare

06 July 2017 11:57

NI Water is currently engaged in an ongoing process of improving and upgrading the water supply infrastructure throughout Northern Ireland and is planning to commence work shortly in the Rashee Road area of Ballyclare. This work is good news for the local area, as the upgraded water mains will improve the quality, reliability and security of the local water supply, while reducing leakage and improving pressure in the area.


Work is expected to commence on the Rashee Road on the 17th July for approximately 2 weeks. During this time, the Rashee Road will be closed to through traffic from the junction of Cogry Road to the junction of Readers Park. A diversion route will be in place via Cogry Road – Bridge Road – Ballyclare Road, as well as a diversion via Ballyeaston Road – Trenchill Road.


The work will be completed in sections to keep disruption to a minimum and traffic management and diversion signage will be in place at all times.


NI Water will continue to liaise with the Department for Infrastructure and local stakeholders and will do everything possible to keep any disruption to a minimum. We will also work with Translink to ensure that public transport services function with minimum disruption. 


NI Water and our contractor Farrans Utilities would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation and will complete letter drops in affected areas to advise residents of this work. Traffic management and signage will also be in place as the work progresses.


Our customer relations team can also be contacted via Waterline on 03457 440088. Customers with any questions on the scheme should quote “Farrans Utilities Water Mains Rehabilitation Programme”.
