It is anticipated that the works will take approximately eight weeks to complete.

This project is being carried out to provide a storm sewer for a new housing development at 37 Limavady Road. This will involve the laying of approximately 259 metres of storm sewer and associated manholes.

Detailed traffic management plans have been discussed and agreed with TransportNI to try to minimise the impact of these works on residents, road users and the general public.

In order for the works to be completed safely it will be necessary to have a lane closure in place on the Limavady Road. This will be in place for the duration of the works and two way traffic will be maintained with the use of temporary traffic lights. Vehicular access will be maintained for residents where possible, pedestrian access will be restricted to the footpath adjacent to the country bound traffic lane. The opposite footpath, adjacent to the city bound traffic lane will be closed for the duration of the works.

Working hours will generally be restricted to 9.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday. However it may be necessary at times for work to be carried out outside of these hours. Traffic delays are to be expected and motorists are advised to allow extra time for their journey or if possible take an alternative route.

NI Water and their contractor BSG Civil Engineering Ltd would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while they complete this essential work and say they will do everything they can to keep disruption to a minimum and ensure the work is completed as soon as practicably possible.
