Pumping station upgrade, Wilson's Point, Bangor
Pumping station upgrade, Wilson's Point, Bangor
Work well underway to upgrade the sewerage pumping station at Wilson's Point in Bangor. This is not mentioned in the official literature (see shared description below) but I believe that it is part of the overall improvement scheme. A large lorry had just arrived to remove the green cabin - almost blocking the coastal path but leaving just enough room for the numerous walkers to squeeze past.
Bangor Sewerage Infrastructure Improvement Scheme
Images of the sewerage improvement scheme around Bangor, begun in early 2014. The official text below is from LinkExternal link :

"An essential programme of improvement work is currently underway to upgrade the sewerage infrastructure and key pumping stations in the Bangor area.

The first phase of NI Water’s essential improvement programme represents an investment in the region of £3.1 million and will involve upgrade work at Luke’s Point and the construction of a new Pumping Station at Bangor Marina to provide extra storage capacity, particularly during periods of heavy rainfall. It is anticipated that work will be complete before Summer 2014.


The project is good news for the local area and will greatly improve the water quality in Ballyholme strand and the North Down coastal waters, whilst improving the sewerage infrastructure in the North Down area. The work will also ensure that NI Water complies with Northern Ireland Environment Agency standards and will help to ensure that local beaches meet EU Directives for bathing water quality.

Subject to funding, the next phases of this programme of work will involve upgrading Castle Park Pumping Station, followed by further phases of work planned at Brompton and Stricklands Sewage Pumping Stations, and improving the sewerage infrastructure in the Carnalea and Clandeboye areas."
