Road Closure - NI Water Improvement Work Planned for Lurgan Road, Aghalee
04 November 2014 13:02
NI Water is currently undertaking pipelaying works in the Lurgan Road area as part of their £14 million Castor Bay to Belfast Water Trunk Main Scheme, an extensive project that will safeguard water quality and improve the security of supply for our customers in the area.
We would like to advise the public that pipelaying works are scheduled to get underway on the Lurgan Road (between Aghalee and Aghagallon) commencing Monday 10 November 2014.
To ensure pipelaying is carried out in the safest possible manner, our contractor, Lagan Construction, will need to implement a road closure on Lurgan Road, between the junction with Goudy Bridge Road and the junction with Brankinstown Road for approximately five weeks.
A diversion route will be signposted and schools in the area, as well as the Education Board and emergency services, have been notified.
Pipelaying work is also scheduled to take place shortly along the Cornakinnegar Road. Once a date has been finalised, signage and traffic management will be in place and we will continue to liaise with Transport NI regarding this section of work.
Work on Colane Road, off the Lurgan Road, will be completed by the end of this week (Friday 7 November)
Martin Gillen, NI Water's Project Manager, said: ''NI Water and our contractor, Lagan Construction, would like to thank the public for their patience and co-operation while we complete this essential improvement work, which will safeguard the security of the water supply for our customers.
'Letter drops will also be completed in the local area and customers with any concerns are encouraged to contact the Waterline number. We will endeavour to complete the work as quickly as possible, with minimal disruption and will continue to work closely with the local community to address any concerns.''
