Pipelaying & Road Closure – Fort Hill Road, Newry

12 May 2015 14:55

NI Water is currently undertaking work in the Newry area as part of the £6m Ballydougan to Newry Trunk Main Scheme, an extensive project that will upgrade the local water storage and supply network, as well as improving drinking water quality for customers in Newry city and the surrounding areas.

We would like to advise the public of pipelaying works which are now underway on the Fort Hill Road, Newry. Pipelaying will get underway at the Crieve Road junction and will continue along the Fort Hill Road to Crieve Service Reservoir over a period of approximately 6 weeks.

To ensure pipelaying is carried out in the safest possible manner, Fort Hill Road will be closed to through traffic from its junction with the Crieve Road to its junction with the Temple Hill Road. The diversion route approved by Transport NI is via Temple Hill Road, Pound Street and Monks Hill Road.

NI Water and our contractor BSG Civil Engineering would like to thank local residents and road users for their patience and co-operation and will do everything we can to reduce disruption in the area and complete this essential improvement work as quickly as possible. Signage will be in place and access will be maintained at all times for residents within the construction area.

Customer queries should be directed to Waterline on 08457 440088, quoting “BSG Civil Engineering Ballydougan to Newry Trunk Main Scheme”.
