Watermains improvements on A46 Lough Shore Road, west of Enniskillen.
15 April 2013 11:06NI Water will be laying new watermains from Silverhill Bridge to the junction with Drumboory Road. This work is due to commence on Monday 15 April and last for approximately four weeks.
The work was identified as part of plans NI Water has developed for security of supply for the G8 Summit and will include replacing the watermain up to 100 metres into a reinstated road at the junction of Drumboory Road.
NI Water’s project manager, Gavin McGinty, explained:
“NI Water work closely with other departments to co-ordinate planned work to ensure, where possible, any water or sewerage upgrade work can be done before a road is reinstated. In this case, however, the requirements for security of water supply for the G8 summit were not finalised until after the road was reinstated.
“We would like to reassure the public NI Water will fully restore the road to its present condition upon completion of the work and will keep any disruption in the area to an absolute minimum. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank local residents and road users for their patience while this work is carried out.”
Customers in the area have been notified in relation to possible intermittent disruption to water supplies and further notice will be given if the water is off for a longer period of time.
