£75,000 Essential Watermains Improvement Programme in the Pipeline for Bushmills

15 April 2014 10:13

NI Water is currently engaged in an ongoing process of improving and upgrading the water supply infrastructure throughout Northern Ireland. We wish to inform customers in the area that work is scheduled to commence in Bushmills village in late May 2014 for a period of approximately 4 weeks. The announcement of this work is good news for the local area, as the upgraded water mains will improve the quality, reliability and security of the local water supply.

The work will take place along the Dunluce Road from the Priestlands junction to Market Square in the centre of the village. It is anticipated that the work will be completed by the end of June 2014. Signage will be in place and the public will be notified of any diversions as necessary.

Maurice Crawford NI Water Project Manager said:

“This scheme is good news for the local area, as local people will directly benefit from improvements in the local water quality and reliability of the water supply for many years to come.

“Where possible, we will use state of the art no-dig technology, to reduce the need to open large trenches in the road.

“NI Water will, in co-operation with DRD Roads Service, residents and local traders, do everything possible to reduce disruption. We will also work with Translink to ensure that public transport services function with minimum disruption.”  

NI Water and our contractor Lagan Construction will carry out letter drops in affected areas to advise those affected by this work. Our customer relations team can also be contacted via Waterline on 08457 440088. Customers with any questions on the scheme should quote “Lagan Construction Water Mains Rehabilitation Programme”.
