Work commences on second phase of South Belfast’s £7 million flood alleviation project

Work has commenced on the second phase of NI Water’s £7 Million Flood Alleviation Project in South Belfast.

Some sewers in this part of South Belfast date back to the early 20th century and are in very poor condition. The work will significantly reduce the risk of ‘out-of-sewer’ flooding and environmental pollution in the area. It will also remove a large amount of storm water from the combined sewer, which will provide additional capacity for future development.

Additional works to upgrade the existing Watermain on Ravenhill Avenue will also commence mid to late February. The works are due to take 6-8 weeks. Parking restrictions will be in place in the works area as it progresses up the avenue and will continue until phase completion at Cantrell Close. Water supplies may be temporarily interrupted during these works but affected customers will be notified in advance of any planned shutdowns. Further phases of works on Ravenhill Avenue will be communicated in due course.

NI Water chose Geda Construction as their contractor for this project.
