Extension of Essential Watermains Improvement Work in Fivemiletown

13 October 2014 9:57

NI Water is currently engaged in an ongoing process of improving and upgrading the water supply infrastructure throughout Northern Ireland. This work is part of an overall £5.3 million ongoing package of work for the Fermanagh and South Tyrone area. This investment is good news, as the upgraded water mains will improve the quality, reliability and security of the local water supply, while reducing leakage and improving pressure in the area.

NI Water wishes to advise the public that the timeframe for the work has to be extended for a further three weeks.  It is now expected to be complete by 31 October 2014.   The current traffic management programme detailed below will remain in place until the end of the works.  

In order to avoid delays to morning and evening commuters, works will only take place between the hours of 09:30 and 16:30 during weekdays. So that this work can be completed efficiently, a temporary one-way traffic system will be in operation for the full length of Main Street. Access for all traffic will be maintained; however, delays may be expected. Please note that during the works there will be no right turn available from Altaveedan Road onto Main Street. This is to ensure that the one way system operates safely and effectively along Main Street.

Gavin McGinty, NI Water Project Manager, said:

“NI Water would like to thank residents, businesses and road users in the area for the patience they have shown to date while this essential work is carried out.  We will continue to work as quickly as possible to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum.”  

NI Water and our contractor Farrans Construction have completed letter drops in affected areas to advise residents of this extension to the work. Our customer relations team can also be contacted via Waterline on 08457 440088. Customers with any questions on the scheme should quote “Farrans Utilities Water Mains Rehabilitation Programme”.
