NI Water to carry out sewer upgrade at Cliff Path, Portstewart

26 September 2023 11:07

NI Water is due to carry out some work on the sewerage network located off Cliff Path at the beginning of October as part of its recent project to improve the wastewater infrastructure in Portstewart.

Robert McLean, NI Water Senior Project Manager said: “The NI Water upgrade, which has been scheduled to take place when a section of Cliff Path is closed for council maintenance work, will get underway during the week commencing the 2nd October 2023 and will last approximately 2 weeks.

“Signage will be erected in advance to advise pedestrians of the temporary path closure. Vehicular access for businesses and residents will be maintained along The Crescent but may be subject to slight delays. For safety reasons, parking restrictions will be in place around any working area.

“Please be aware that construction sites are dangerous areas for unauthorised persons, especially children and we would appreciate your cooperation in ensuring that children do not play in or around the works or machinery. Working areas will have warning signs and traffic control in place to protect the public from any danger.

“NI Water and our contractor for this upgrade, GEDA Construction, thank the public in advance for their patience and cooperation while we undertake this essential work. This project will improve the condition of the existing sewerage system, reducing the likelihood of sewer collapses, blockages and ‘out of sewer’ flooding.”

Key points to remember:

  • Only flush the 3Ps: Pee, Poo and Paper. Flushing inappropriate items can block your sewers and even end up on our beaches or in our rivers.

  • Beware of Bogus Callers – if you are concerned about the identity of someone at your door, you can call the PSNI non-emergency number ‘101’ where you will have the option of a ‘Quickcheck’ to confirm the caller is from the utility they say they are.
