Urgent bid to prevent sewer pipe collapse in south Belfast


Emergency repair work is being carried out to prevent a sewer in south Belfast from collapsing.

Northern Ireland Water said inspections of the sewer serving Windsor Avenue show that it needs immediate work if it is to continue to function.

The sewer is showing signs of damage and if not repaired could collapse and block the flow, the company said.

Work will start on Thursday and will involve replacing a section of the sewer at the lower end of Windsor Avenue and out onto the Lisburn Road.

It is anticipated the work will take five days to complete and will continue throughout the weekend.

In order to complete the work NI Water, with the co-operation of Roads Service, must close the Windsor Avenue and Lisburn Road junction, with an additional lane closure on Lisburn Road. Local access will be through the Malone Road entrance for the duration of the works.

Customers with queries regarding this work should contact Waterline on 08457 440088.
