“Access for residents will be maintained at all times from either Watsons Road or Dublin Road, depending on the location of works.

“Residents in Glenvale Crescent and Glen Hill Park will only be able to access their properties from the Dublin Road during this work.

“Pedestrian access along Glen Hill will be maintained at all times.

“Details of the work and the associated traffic management arrangements have been circulated to residents around Glen Hill, and signage to notify the wider public has been erected in the area.

“The approved diversion route during these works will be via Watsons Road, Liska Road and Dublin Road.

“We would advise motorists travelling in these areas to allow more time for their journeys while this work is ongoing.

“Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, Translink and the emergency services have been notified of this road closure and the associated diversion route.



“Bin collections will be carried out as normal from each end of Glen Hill.

“Normal working hours will be 7:30 am to 5.00 pm Monday to Friday; however, it may be necessary at times for work to be carried out outside of these hours.

“NI Water and BSG-Phace take this opportunity to highlight to residents that construction sites are dangerous areas for unauthorised persons, especially children, and we would appreciate your cooperation in ensuring that children do not play in or around the site or machinery.

“Working areas will have warning signs in place to protect the public from any hazards.

“The public are advised to stay away from working areas for their own safety.

“In advance of work getting underway at Glen Hill, the project team from NI Water, Atkins and BSG-Phace would like to convey our thanks to local residents and the wider public for their patience and cooperation while we undertake this essential work to serve new housing in the area.

“We assure you that we will strive to complete the work as quickly as possible and keep disruption to a minimum.”
