Ravenhill Rd, Belfast Sewer Improvement Scheme Gets Underway
22 May 2015 15:11NI Water would like to announce that work on a £500,000 contract is about to get underway to complete sewer relining and repair work on the existing brick sewer on the Ravenhill Road in South Belfast.
Stage 1 of the work will start at the beginning of June and will continue for approximately four weeks. In order to reduce traffic disruption, work will take place between 8 pm and 6am to complete sewer relining and repair work. This work will take place between Cherryvale Playing fields and Broughton Park (City side of Park Road). The work will involve the use of environmentally friendly underground trenchless technology to complete the repairs without the need to open large trenches.
Stage 2 of the work will take place during July and August 2015 and will involve working between 7am and 9pm to complete sewer relining and repair work between Park Road and My Lady’s Road (Orchardville Business Centre). Again, this work will involve the use of trenchless techniques to complete the repairs along with some limited open excavation work.
The work is required to repair and renew the existing sewers in poor condition and will help reduce the risk of flooding. We will endeavour to work Mondays to Saturdays inclusive, however there may be occasional circumstances when Sunday work is necessary.
Throughout this programme of work, the Ravenhill Road will remain open in both directions with single lane traffic controlled by temporary traffic signals. NI Water are working closely with Transport NI and other stakeholders to minimise disruption in the area and there will be no work on site during the Tall Ships event from the 1st – 5th July inclusive.
We will monitor these arrangements as the work progresses, and do everything we can to minimise disruption in the area.
NI Water and our contractor Graham Construction will continue to liaise closely with Transport NI and would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while we complete this essential improvement work.
