Work is currently underway on an essential sewer improvement scheme in Lisburn.
Once complete the project will improve the sewerage infrastructure in the area and will improve the river water quality in the river Lagan.
There are two sections of work programmed for the summer months:-
Antrim Road - Work on replacing the existing sewer on Antrim Road between Clonevin Park and Bellevue Drive commenced on 4 July and will take approximately eight weeks to complete.
In order to carry out the work safely, it will be necessary to temporarily close sections of the Antrim Road for the duration of the works. Vehicular access will be maintained for residents where possible and pedestrian access will be maintained at all times. Temporary traffic diversion routes will be clearly signposted.
Antrim Street - It is anticipated that work on the construction of a new sewer overflow chamber on Antrim Street close to the entrance to the McKeown Street Carpark will commence on the 25 July and will take approximately eight weeks to complete. Traffic has been reduced down to one lane. Two-way traffic will be maintained with the use of temporary traffic lights. Parking will be restricted within the working area and pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
There will be no work taking place from 9 - 17 July.
