 | NI Water News
NI Water and our contractor Farrans Construction will commence pipelaying works on the 9th March in the vicinity of St Patrick’s Street, Draperstown, as part of a major investment programme to upgrade the water main infrastructure throughout Northern Ireland. This work is good news for customers in the local area, as the upgraded watermains will improve the quality, security and flexibility of the water supply, as well as reducing leakage and improving pressure.

The project team will hold a “drop-in” information session on Monday 24th February, 4pm to 6pm in in Workspace Recreation Centre, Backrow, Draperstown to discuss the works. Everyone is welcome to call in at any stage between 4-6pm to get further information on the project. The team will be happy to answer any questions the public may have.

Work will begin on High Street/ The Square Junction, progress towards the roundabout and down St. Patricks Street (Credit Union Side) to the Glenelly Villas junction.

In order to complete this work efficiently and safely, traffic management will be in place. Work will be completed in sections to keep disruption to a minimum.  

Further updates and signage will be in place and NI Water would like to thank the public in advance for their patience and cooperation during this essential improvement work and assure the public that we will do everything possible to keep all disruption to a minimum.

For further information, please contact NI Water’s Press Office on 02890 354710 or email
