Ormeau Sewerage Improvement Project - Dublin Road One-way Closure this Weekend  

Belfast City Centre - Work on a major £5 million project for the Ormeau Avenue/Dublin Road areas is now drawing to a close. Completion of the project will significantly reduce the risk of ‘out of sewer flooding’ in this area of Belfast City Centre during periods of heavy rainfall, as well as reducing Environmental pollution and improving the water quality in the Blackstaff Culvert and River Lagan.

Dublin Road 24 - 25 August 2019

Work will take place on the Dublin Road this weekend to remove manhole covers from the now redundant sections of sewer and complete road reinstatement. In order to facilitate this work, a ‘one way’ road closure will be in place over a short section of the Dublin Road between Bruce Street and Bedford Street from 7am on Saturday morning to 9pm on Sunday night. There will be no left turn onto the Dublin Road from Bruce Street during this time, and a diversion route will be clearly signposted.

Ormeau Avenue - Monday 26 - Tuesday 27 August 

Work will also take place on the left turning lane from Ormeau Avenue to the Dublin Road to remove redundant manhole covers. This will commence on Monday 26th August at 7am and continue until 9pm on Tuesday 27th August. During this time, the left turning lane onto Dublin Road will be closed, with traffic diverted onto Bedford Street.

NI Water appreciates that this work is disruptive and would like to thank residents, business and road users for their ongoing patience and cooperation during the completion of this major construction project within Belfast City Centre.
