Off-peak lane closure on Templepatrick Road, Ballyclare to facilitate pipelaying for new housing

16 October 2023 12:40

NI Water will be carrying out work to install new wastewater infrastructure, including almost 700m of new pumping main on the Templepatrick and Jubilee roads in Ballyclare to serve a development of over 200 houses in the town.

Commenting on the work and associated traffic management, NI Water Project Manager, Stephanie McBride said: “Pipelaying is due to get underway week commencing Monday 23rd October on the Templepatrick Road, adjacent to Ballyclare Wastewater Treatment Works (near the Maxol garage) and will progress towards Jubilee Road.

“To carry out the work as safely as possible, it will be necessary to have a temporary lane closure in place on the Templepatrick Road around the working area, between 09.30 and 16.30 daily. Traffic lights will be in place to maintain the flow of traffic. With traffic being down to one lane, we would advise the public to allow more time for their journeys during these off-peak times.

“Work on this section is expected to last up to six weeks. NI Water and our project team from Atkins Réalis and CivCo thank the public for their patience and cooperation while we work to install new infrastructure to serve new housing in the Ballyclare area. Every effort will be taken to minimise disruption and compete the work as quickly as possible.

“We will update the public on traffic management arrangements as this essential programme of work progresses.”
