NI Water continues work in borough

NI Water is carrying out further works in the borough as part of its large-scale mains rehabilitation project across Newtownabbey.

Work will take place along the Doagh Road near Mossley and on the Ballyclare Road from the end of July.

There is also scheduled work taking place on the Longshot near Ballyrobert and on the Ballyeaston Road out of Ballyclare.

NI Water has said there will be disruption and delays during peak periods, however, it was working to minimise the disruption.

The majority of the work will also be completed using trenchless technology, which will mean most of the work will be completed without the need to open large holes in the ground.

There will also be letter drops to those residents directly affected by the work.

A NI Water spokeswoman said the work would improve the “reliability, security and quality” of supply as well as reducing leakages.

She added: “We would like to thank the residents and road users in advance for their co-operation and patience during this essential improvement work.”
