Weekend pipelaying work planned for Mountjoy Road, Omagh, to serve new housing development at Woodside Avenue.

30 January 2023 11:07

NI Water will be undertaking pipelaying work on Mountjoy Road, at its junction with Woodside Avenue, from the evening of Friday 3rd February to Sunday 5th February.

This work forms part of a new storm water infrastructure scheme which is being undertaken in the area to support a new housing development at Woodside Avenue. 

Pipelaying has already been completed on Lisanelly Avenue and Grange Park and is currently ongoing on Woodside Avenue. 

A Traffic Control permit has been authorised by DfI Roads, to facilitate crossing Mountjoy Road from Grange Park into Woodside Avenue. NI Water’s contractor, Deane Public Works Ltd, will implement a temporary lane closure on Mountjoy Road, with three-way traffic lights to manage traffic flow. The work has been authorised by DfI Roads to take place over a weekend, from 7pm on 3rd February to 8am on 6th February, to minimise impact to motorists.

Three-way traffic lights will be in place at the junction of Woodside Avenue and Mountjoy Road and a lane closure will be in place on Mountjoy Road to maintain traffic from Omagh Town Centre. A diversion using St. Julian’s Road and Old Mountfield Road will be in place for traffic coming into town from Gortin Road.

Access to Woodside Avenue will be maintained at all times and NI Water’s contractor will ensure that any deliveries to properties/businesses in the area are facilitated. 

Explaining the need for the work and the associated traffic management arangements, Ian O’Hare, NI Water’s Project Manager for the scheme said: “The new storm sewer is essential to provide storm drainage facilities for a new development at Woodside Avenue, Omagh.

 “Work is currently ongoing on Woodside Avenue under a lane closure with two-way traffic lights. 

“NI Water and Deane Public Works appreciate the patience and cooperation of residents and the wider public while we undertake this essential work to serve new housing in the area. We assure you that we will strive to keep disruption to a minimum and complete the work in the shortest possible timeframe.”
