NI Sewer Rehabilitation Project – Dundrum
01 April 2016 15:55NI Water would like to announce that a programme of sewer rehabilitation work has commenced in the Dundrum area. It is anticipated that it will take approximately 6 months to complete all of the work within the area.
The work in Dundrum is part of NI Water’s ongoing Sewerage Rehabilitation Programme, which represents a significant investment to improve an ageing sewerage network across Northern Ireland over a period of 6 years.
The work may include localised repairs, the installation of “liners” in existing sewers, replacing sewers which are beyond their natural lifespan as well as other associated work. Where possible the work will be carried out using specialist “no-dig” or “low-dig” methods which are designed to minimise disruption and duration of the work. However it will be necessary at some locations to re-lay pipes by traditional “open-dig” methods.
The rehabilitation works will be carried out at the following locations in Dundrum:-
Main Street, McMinns Lane, Carrigvale, Castle Heights, Castle Hill, Castleglen Way, Church View, De Courcey, Dromara Road, Kilmegan Court, Manse Road, Murlough View, Robin Hill, St Donards Walk.
NI Water appreciates that work of this nature can be unavoidably disruptive at certain locations, particularly where temporary road/lane closures and traffic diversions are required. Signage and traffic management will be in place as the scheme progresses.
Alongside our appointed contractor, Dawson Wam, we would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused. We will work closely with Transport NI and other key stakeholders to minimise inconvenience and disruption to local residents, businesses and road users as far as practicably possible.
When complete the project will provide the local community with improved sewerage systems that are less prone to failure from blockages and sewer collapses and will also reduce the risks of ‘out of sewer’ flooding and environmental pollution.
NI Water would like to thank the public for their patience and co-operation while this essential work is completed. Customer queries should be directed to Waterline on 03457 440088.
