The project will help tackle the issue of sewer flooding which has affected properties in the area.

What We Are Doing

We are upgrading the existing sewer network to alleviate internal and external sewer flooding during periods of heavy rain.

The project will be delivered in two phases, the first delivering a permanent solution.

Why We Are Doing It

Historically, the area has been prone to sewer flooding during times of heavy rainfall. 

This significant investment will address sewer flooding and the distress and upset it causes.

Latest Update

July 2022

From Monday 15 August 2022 a short section of David Dale Avenue near the junction of Fleming Drive will be closed to traffic for approximately seven days to allow enabling works ahead of the installation of new sewer pipes later this year.

A signed diversion will be in place via Fleming Drive, Morton Road and Crusader Crescent although access to properties on David Dale Avenue will be maintained and the footpath will be open.

The temporary over-pumping which has been in place since last year will remain on site until the new pipes have been installed.
