IRISH Water is to commence works in late January replacing just over 1km of problematic watermains in the Parteen and Westbury areas.
The works are expected to continue until mid-April and will require occasional water supply outages and an overnight traffic management system between the hours of 7pm and 7am.
The section of works will take place between Athlunkard Bridge and the Corbally/Clonard crossroads (R463).
The project team has pledged to ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours notice before any planned water outages. It is anticipated that outages will be at night and generally no more than four hours in duration.
The upgrades involves the replacement of problematic watermains with new modern pipes and will help provide a more reliable water supply to the local communities.
Gerry O’Donnell, Irish Water said, “We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient, and our work crews will make every effort to minimise any disruption these necessary works cause as we progress the National Leakage Reduction Programme.”
Residents and businesses in the areas to benefit from the planned improvements will be notified directly, and customers can phone Irish Water on 1800 278 278 if they have any questions about the project.
