Irish Water, working in partnership with Roscommon County Council are replacing sections of problematic water main in Roscommon Town to safeguard the water supply for local businesses and families. The new water main will reduce the frequency of bursts and improve water quality.
The works will involve the replacement of over 861 metres of aged cast iron water mains with high density polyethylene (plastic) pipes and the replacement of 150 lead service connections. The works will take place along Goff Street, Athlone Road, Church Street and Abbey Street. They will commence in early July 2019, and continue until October 2019. These works are being carried out as part of Irish Water’s National Leakage Reduction Programme.
To facilitate the safe delivery of these improvement works, there will be road closures in place. The roads closures will be limited to one section at a time to maintain traffic flow and minimise impact on customers.
The sections are as follows: Goff Street (from the N63 roundabout); Athlone Road; Goff Street (between junctions with Athlone Road & Church Street); Church Street (between junctions with Goff Street & Henry Street); Church Street (between junctions with Henry Street & Abbey Street). There will be two-way traffic on Abbey Street.
