Bangor Sewerage Improvement Scheme at Castle Park - Night-time working Continues this weekend

16 January 2018 16:46

NI Water is currently undertaking a major Capital works programme to improve the sewerage infrastructure and key pumping stations in the Bangor area. The overall project represents an investment of £10 million in the local infrastructure by NI Water.


The current phase of the programme involves the replacement of the existing Waste Water pumping station at Castle Park along with the upgrade of sewers in the area. As part of this phase it is necessary to lay a section of new sewer across the Newtownards Road to connect an existing sewer to the new pumping station. This improvement work will reduce the risk of out of sewer flooding and improve water quality in the Clandeboye Stream.


Works will continue this weekend and are programmed to commence at 7.00am on Saturday 20th January, with works scheduled to be completed later that evening. Works of this nature inevitably involves the use of heavy machinery, however we will endeavour to minimize noise as far as possible especially during the night-time hours, and will as far as possible undertake the most disruptive elements of work prior to 11pm.


In order for this work to be carried out safely, it will be necessary to have a temporary lane closure in place on the Bangor bound lane on Belfast Road up to the crossroads with Brunswick Road, Abbey Street and Newtownards Road. Four way temporary traffic signals will be provided at the junction to ensure traffic flows as normal. Vehicular access will be maintained for residents where possible and pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.


NI Water and our contractor Dawson WAM would like to thank the local community and road users for their patience and cooperation while we complete these essential works.
