The works required rapid deployment of a Design & Enabling team to evaluate characteristics and condition of the existing supply network on Ballintemple, Dernaroy and Aghadavoyle Roads, fast track a detailed design, supply interruption management schedule, construction programme and approvals package. Working closely with the Newry NI Water team, with our designers Byrne Looby Partners, under the control of the Córas Enabling Manager, the package and proposals were ratified with construction commencing in early August on a 12 week programme with completion, commissioning and handover by the end of October. The existing mains were predominantly 3 inch Class C uPVC with the new mains directed as 180mm SDR 17 HPPE facilitating a two fold increase in supply capability to the new pumping station in the Killeavy Castle Estate. Nu Line Córas deployed combined trenchless and open cut teams working at high productivity to deliver the new mains, domestic and mains connections along the 4kms of approach roads. In conjunction with the improved supply to the new hotel the works facilitated improvement in water quality and supply pressure locally in the Meigh and Killeavy region. Works were completed one week ahead of programme ensuring early opening of the hotel and drawing compliments from Newry, Mourne & Down Council.
