Clarke welcomes NIE work in Dundrum

Alliance Newcastle Councillor Patrick Clarke has welcomed Northern Ireland Electricity (NIE) commencing replacement works of outside damaged electricity cables to buildings along Main Street Dundrum following a number of site inspections of outside electricity cables running along the top frontage of the buildings.

Councillor Clarke says he had previously made representations to NIE who own and maintain the meters and wiring to inspect the exterior wiring due to pieces of insulation on electricity cables along the Main Street showing deterioration as well as wear and tear.

Speaking to Newry Times, Clarke stated:

“I welcome NIE commencing works to replace damaged electricity cables following a street survey of Main Street Dundrum. The majority of buildings along Main Street Dundrum are listed and it has been noted that some pieces of the insulation outside along certain sections are badly worn, missing and damaged, and it was felt by some residents that this posed a real risk to anyone working on the outside of buildings.”

“NIE have previously carried out repairs to some buildings periodically along Main Street to replace exterior electricity cables which have become damaged through age, wear and tear and the buildings being along the coast subjected to the weather elements.”

He added, “I am pleased that the replacement of exterior electricity cables to buildings along Main Street Dundrum which was prioritised by NIE has now begun following both written and verbal representations outlining my concern as to the condition of some of the exterior electricity cables.”
