Loads of stone being dropped on Slieve Commedagh | NI Water News

As part of our ongoing Mourne Wall Restoration Project, NI Water has reached the half-way point for our helicopter deliveries for this year. The helicopter airlifting and dropping of essential capping stones to various locations is necessary to provide structural integrity and thus complete sections of the wall that have already been restored. This work will continue over the next week or two depending on weather conditions.


The restoration work is progressing well on this major scheme to repair this historic monument. Subsequent helicopter lifts will be organised over the next two years as other sections of wall renovation get underway. Health and safety is a priority for both NI Water and our contractor, GEDA Construction. Signage is in place throughout the works area and the site will be manned and closely monitored as material is lowered to site. We would like to thank the public for their cooperation as this project continues and any customer queries should be directed to Waterline on 03457 440088.
