Water works at Quigley's Point continue 08.10.19

IRISH Water, working in partnership with Donegal County Council, is replacing approximately 5km of ageing water mains at Three Trees, Quigley's Point and Cabry areas of Inishowen. The route of the watermain runs along the R238 regional road and L-1951-1 local road via Quigleys Point village and will also extend into side roads to facilitate connections to existing watermains.
Removing the existing old cast iron from the public water network and replacing them with new plastic pipes will reduce the risk of contamination. Replacing the ageing water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to residents and local businesses in the area.

The works are currently being carried out by ShareRidge Limited on behalf of Irish Water. It is expected that initial section of pipe installation and temporary reinstatement works to Quigley’s Point will last for approximately nine weeks with works from Quigley’s point towards Redcastle to follow on from this for approximately eight weeks.
Areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on residents. The works may involve some short-term water shut offs and the project team will ensure that those affected are given a minimum of 48 hours notice prior to any planned water shut offs.
Traffic management will be in place during this time. The contractor will be monitoring traffic during peak times in the morning and evening and will switch to a manned stop/go control should there be an unacceptable build up of vehicles.
