Road closure planned for Marble Hill in mouth of summer season

Road closures have been scheduled at Marble Hill next month as part of a programme of works that Irish Water is carrying out in partnership with Donegal County Council.

The programme will see the replacement of 370 metres of ageing water mains and service connections.

These necessary works will take place along Faugher Heights and continue on to Marble Hill Court.

Once complete, the utility says that the works will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages, eliminate leaks and lead to a safer, more secure supply of water to the local community.

The works are due to commence on 7 May and are expected to complete by the end of May.

Areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on customers.

To ensure the safety of the workers and the local community, a road closure will be required on the Marble Hill Road for the duration of the works.

This road will be reopened every weekend from 6.00pm Friday to 8.00am Monday during the course of the works.

An alternative route will be available along the Rockhill Road, which will be clearly signposted. Local and emergency traffic will be maintained at all times.

Some short-term water shut offs may also be necessary and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours’ notice prior to any planned water shut offs.
