Updated: Oct 8, 2023

Ballygarvey Road in Ballymena - a country road surrounded by green fields

The Ballygarvey Road, Ballymena is set to close from Monday (9th October) to allow NI Water to undertake scheduled works in the area.

The work will see the upgrade of local water infrastructure in the area and will involve the upsizing of the main water pipe which runs under a section of the road.

The closure was originally planned to start from 18th September, but this was pushed back to October.

During this time a full road closure will be in place as work gets underway between 500m East of the Cushendall Road junction, and 500m West of the junction with Parade Road.

An alternate route will be signposted from Knockan Road (Broughshane) via Raceview Road, Fry's Road, and Cushendall Road.

Speaking last month a NI Water spokesperson said:

“NI Water is planning to carry out an upgrade of Ballygarvey Wastewater Pumping Station, located off Ballygarvey Road towards the end of September 2023.

"This essential upgrade will future proof the capability of the local pumping station and will include the upsizing of the associated pumping main along part of Ballygarvey Road.

"The pipelaying element of the upgrade on the Ballygarvey Road is currently due to get underway on Monday 9th October for a period of 10 weeks.   

"NI Water and our contractor, GRAHAM, will carry out a letter drop to residents and businesses in the area at least two weeks in advance of the work commencing. A diversion route for motorists will be signposted and advance notification signage in the locality will be amended to suit the revised start date.”
