Trenchless techniques should help NI Water keep traffic flowing during essential works

NI Water is due to commence pipelaying works in Lurgan, Northern Ireland, to serve two new housing developments in the area.

The work, which will involve the installation of new sewers and the construction of associated manholes, will be carried out under a lane closure. Pipelaying is expected to take between 16 and 20 weeks to complete and a section of new pumping main that NI Water needs to install has been programmed to coincide with these works to reduce further impact on the area.

Speaking about this essential work, Robert McLean, NI Water Senior Project Manager said: “NI Water and our contractor, AG Wilson Civil Engineering, have worked to develop a design for this work that will minimise disruption for businesses, residents and road users. Through the use of trenchless techniques, we will be able to install these new pipelines under a lane closure.

“The use of these innovative methods of construction will avoid the need for a road closure and will help to vastly reduce commuter disruption.”
