£500,000 Watermains Improvement Scheme Continues in Maghera

20 July 2018 14:46

NI Water is currently engaged in an ongoing process of improving and upgrading the water supply infrastructure throughout Northern Ireland and work is currently ongoing in the Maghera area. Approximately £500,000 has been invested in this programme of work, which is good news for customers in the local area as the upgraded watermains will improve the quality, reliability and security of the local water supply, while reducing leakage and improving pressure in the area.

NI Water and our contractor Meridian Utilities will be working throughout Maghera during the summer to upgrade the town’s water supply. Work commenced in June and will take approximately six months to complete, with work taking place at Station Road, Main Street and Carricknakielt Road. Pedestrian access will be available throughout this work and traffic management and signage will be in place as the work progresses.

We would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while we complete this essential programme of work and we will do everything possible to keep any disruption to a minimum. We are working closely with the local business community, Mid-Ulster Council and all our stakeholders to reduce the impact this will have on traffic in the area.

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