Essential Storm Sewer Work to Get Underway in the Creggan area, L’Derry

01 October 2014 12:23

NI Water will shortly be commencing significant storm sewer extension work in Culdaff Gardens in the Creggan area.

This essential work, representing some £28,000 of investment in the area, is intended to extend a section of stormwater sewer in order to serve a 27 property residential development on Culdaff Gardens.

Work will commence on Monday 13 October and is scheduled for completion by Friday 31 October.

The main tasks will include the installation of 140 metres of storm sewer and the construction of five manholes at surface level.

Robert McLean, NI Water’s Project Manager for the scheme, said: ‘‘This investment is good news for residents in the area and will help accommodate further development in Culdaff Gardens.  

‘‘We will make every effort to minimise disruption, but a certain amount will be unavoidable.  A traffic management scheme will be in operation along Central Drive in the form of traffic lights and a lane closure for the duration of the work.  Vehicular access for residents will be maintained at all times, but pedestrian access may be affected for a short while, and there will be parking restrictions.

‘‘Like all work of this nature, there is a health and safety element, and while signs and barriers will be in place, we encourage the public, especially children and young people, to stay away from the working site and from any machinery.  NI Water would appeal for the support of parents and community representatives in this matter.’’

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption this essential work may cause.   Anyone with any queries or comments should contact us via Waterline by dialling 08457 440088, quoting ‘Project KL519 – Culdaff Gardens Storm Sewer Extension.’
