£4.8million Capital Investment Programme to Enhance the River Lagan

Posted: Monday 28th July 2014

Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy has announced that NI Water is currently engaged in a £4.8million programme of improvements to Lisburn’s sewerage system that will enhance and protect the River Lagan.

Phase One of the programme is currently underway and involves replacing a pumping station at Drumbeg Drive, Old Warren. It is expected that this work will be completed by September 2014.

Phase Two will involve construction work and sewer laying at various isolated locations throughout the city, including Antrim Road, Antrim Street and Linenhall Street, and the wider area. It is anticipated that this work will get underway in October 2014 and finish in spring 2016.

Danny Kennedy said: “This very significant investment will not only deliver improvements and benefits for the residents in and around the Lisburn area, it is very welcome news for the wider environment in Northern Ireland and once again is a clear demonstration of our commitment to improve the sewerage infrastructure across Northern Ireland.”

Mark Sefton, NI Water Senior Project Manager, said: “The entire programme of work is good news for Lisburn and the local area, as the upgrades to the sewerage system will improve and safeguard the water quality of the River Lagan, one of the city’s greatest natural assets, for the benefit of citizens and visitors alike.
