Collapsed sewer repair in Belfast at the junction of Garmoyle Street and Dock Street
16 December 2020 16:42
“NI Water can report that the repair to the collapsed sewer in Belfast at the junction of Garmoyle Street and Dock Street is progressing well, but slowly. This is due to having to break out reinforced concrete under the road surface that was uncovered once we started to excavate.
“The lane closure will remain in place now until at least 20 December to ensure concrete reinstatement is cured to protect the infrastructure and the travelling public. Teams have been working into the evening to complete this job as quickly as possible.
“A further defect has also been identified upstream of the current excavation and this will be addressed under the ongoing works.
“NI Water will provide regular updates until this emergency repair work is completed. We would like to thank the public for their patience and reassure them we are doing everything we can to complete the repair as soon as possible.”
