Upper Newtownards Road Sewerage Upgrade Works Continue
10 February 2015 15:41NI Water is currently completing essential sewerage upgrade works in the Reaville Park/Upper Newtownards Road area of East Belfast. This essential improvement work will improve the local sewerage infrastructure and reduce the likelihood of flooding in the area. Due to unforeseen ground conditions, there has been a delay to the programme of work and we expect that work will now be completed by the end of February 2015.
Due to the nature of the work, a certain amount of disruption will be inevitable. However, every effort will be made to mitigate this and keep such disruption to an absolute minimum.
A road closure will be required to allow safe access to the site. The road closure will be restricted from the junction of Upper Newtownards Road and Reaville Park. Traffic diversions will be in place for all other traffic, with routes clearly signposted, and vehicle access for residents will be maintained as far as possible.
NI Water are also keen to remind customers that construction sites are very dangerous places for unauthorised people, particularly children and young people. We would appeal for the support of the community in ensuring that children do not play in or around the works or any machinery.
Any customer with any queries or special requirements relating to access should contact Waterline on 08457 440088, quoting ‘Meadowbank/Reaville Park Dundonald Flood Alleviation Scheme.’
