£4.8m To Be Invested In Modern Ballyronan Wastewater Treatment Facility

Construction News Image
The County L'Derry village of Ballyronan is set for a major infrastructure project with the development of a modern new wastewater treatment facility.

NI Water is leading the £4.8 million scheme, which will see a new facility built to replace the existing treatment works, which was constructed in the 1970s off the Ballyronan Road/Shore Road Ballyronan. The existing works will remain in operation while the new infrastructure is being installed at the same site.

Coalisland-based GEDA Construction has been appointed to carry out the 18-month contract, with work expected to begin this summer. This will see the implementation of a temporary working area adjacent to the site to facilitate construction works. Newry-based Water Solutions Ireland will carry out the extensive mechanical and electrical installation at the site, while Belfast-based RPS Group is providing technical support for the project.

Infrastructure Minister John O'Dowd said: "NI Water's substantial £4.8m investment is good news for people who live in the Ballyronan area. The work, which is being undertaken by local companies, will include the installation of state-of-the-art, fully enclosed, treatment tanks, along with advanced electrical and mechanical systems to provide a robust wastewater treatment solution.

"This will support local development and help improve water quality in Lough Neagh delivering economic and environmental benefits for the local community for many years to come."

NI Water Project Manager, Sean Milligan added: "Construction work at the site will get underway in full after the July holidays. In advance of that, GEDA will set up their working compound and carry out any necessary preliminary works.

"During the initial construction phase of the project, there will be increased construction traffic at the site and along the Ballyronan Road, as materials and new infrastructure are delivered and excavated spoil removed. There will be less construction traffic during the later mechanical and electrical fit out and commissioning of the plant.

"NI Water and GEDA look forward to working with the community and supporting local businesses as far as possible through the delivery of this essential new wastewater infrastructure. We assure you that we will strive to minimise any disruption and complete the work in the shortest timescale possible."
