Pipelaying to get underway on Ardmillan Road, Killinchy in January to serve new development

23 December 2022 13:14

NI Water will be commencing work to lay a new surface water sewer on the Ardmillan Road, Killinchy in January. The works will see the installation of approximately 60m of surface water sewer pipe and the construction of associated manholes, required to serve a new development.

It is anticipated that this work will commence on Monday 9th January 2023 and take approximately 3 weeks to complete overall.

Traffic management arrangements will be in place, and in order to complete the works safely, it will be necessary to implement a road closure on a section of the Ardmillan Road (between its junction with Tullynakill Road and its junction with Killinakin Road). The approved diversion route will be signposted for motorists and access to the Tullynakin Road will be available from the Ardmillan Road.

As the pipelaying work moves along Ardmillan Road, access will be maintained for businesses and residents located within the road closure/working area and our contractor CivCo will work to accommodate any deliveries to properties situated within a works area.

Please be aware that construction sites are dangerous areas for unauthorised persons, especially children, and we would appreciate your co-operation in ensuring that children do not play in or around any site or machinery. Working areas will have warning signs in place to protect the public from any hazards. The public are advised to stay out of these working areas for their own safety.

NI Water and our contractor CIVCO Ltd would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while we undertake this essential work to serve new housing in the Killinchy area. We assure you that we will strive to keep disruption to a minimum and complete the work in the shortest possible timeframe.


Notes to editors:

  • NI Water has a 3-step process, which allows our team of experts to work closely with developers to assess any network or treatment capacity issues associated with proposed new developments.
  • We want to ensure that the development process is as simple as possible, so it’s really important to get in touch with the team prior to any application for planning approval.

  • Do not let children go near work sites or equipment, this can be extremely dangerous.
