Northern Ireland Water is to carry out essential pipelaying work on the A25 Rathfriland Road during July and August as part of its Ballydougan to Newry Trunk Main Scheme. niwater14The £6m project will upgrade the local water storage and supply network, as well as improve drinking water quality for customers in Newry city and surrounding areas. The pipelaying – which will be carried out under a lane closure with traffic lights to manage traffic flow – will affect the section of the A25 between the roundabout and Annsville. Works are scheduled to get underway week commencing 6th July and last for approximately six weeks. Speaking about the planned work, Martin Gillen, NI Water’s project manager for the scheme said, “The pipelaying has been scheduled to be carried out over the summer months when it is anticipated that the Rathfriland Road will be less busy due to the absence of school traffic. “The work will be carried out under a lane closure using a traffic light system to help minimise delays, although motorists may want to allow themselves extra time for journeys while the work is ongoing. “Letter drops have been carried out to homes and businesses along the route and signage will be erected in advance to notify motorists. NI Water’s contractor, BSG Civil Engineering, will strive to minimise disruption during the work and will provide access to businesses and homes at all times. Martin added, “To help progress the work, the contractor will work through most of the July builders’ holidays.”
