‘Essential work’ to blame for Enniskillen gridlock

Gridlock last summer as work began at Johnston Bridge RMG65

The current traffic hold-ups in Enniskillen caused by roadworks is set to continue until the end of April due to ‘essential works being carried out by NI Water.
The work being completed in the Rossory area are part of a £2.8 million investment programme being carried out by NI Water to improve and enhance the water mains infrastructure across the area.
Currently the Drummee Road is closed to through traffic with local access to residents maintained. The road closure has been causing long delays and traffic jams for local residents and commuters wishing to by-pass Enniskillen town by linking between the Monea and Sligo Roads.
Motorists who would normally use the Ashwoods and Drumee Roads for this purpose to go through the town, utilising the Shore Road past the Round ‘O’ and along the Sligo Road from the bridges, and vice versa.
Access to the Drummee Landfill and Recycling Centre will always be maintained from Monea Road. Diversionary signage is in place and works are expected to be completed along the Drummee Road by the end of April.
Works were recently undertaken on the Old Rossory Road and are reaching completion but a further two weeks of work will then be completed on the nearby Monea Road.
A spokesman for Water NI has said, “These essential works involve replacing a section of water mains, and once complete, this will improve the water quality and ensure security of supply.
We would like to thank the local residents and road users for their patience and assure them that we are endeavouring to complete the works as soon as possible.”  Anyone with any queries or concerns should contact NI Water’s Waterline by dialling 03457 440088.

Ray Sanderson spoke to some of the locals about what makes Bellanaleck such an attractive place to live.
