Clarke welcomes completion of replacement electricity cables

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

Councillor Clarke said he had previously made representations to NIE who own and maintain the exterior wiring to inspect the exterior cables.

Clarke stated: “The majority of buildings along Main Street Dundrum are listed and it had been noted that some pieces of the insulation outside along certain sections were very badly worn, missing and damaged, and it was imperative that NIE carried out works to replace the damaged electricity cables.”

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

He added, “I am very pleased that the replacement of exterior electricity cables to buildings along Main Street Dundrum has now been fully completed by NIE following my concerns and representations.”
