SDLP South Down MLA Karen McKevitt has welcomed the announcement from the Minister for Regional Development that the planned water mains extension at Ballygorian Road, Hilltown will be undertaken as part of a larger project to replace 12 kilometres of water mains in the area.

Speaking to Newry Times, McKevitt explained, “In response to my written question the Minister has explained that preliminary work on the project is well underway and is due to be completed in September 2013.

“Construction work is expected to commence in November 2013 subject to the statutory approvals and the availability of funding. The water main extension at Ballygorian Road will be undertaken first and is expected to be completed by the end of December 2013.

She added, “This will be very welcome news for the residents of the Ballygorian Road who for many years have had to deal with inadequate water supply and low pressure.”
