See J3873 : Pipe lying on the Upper Newtownards Road at Knock (June 2017). The works have now been extended, further along the road, towards Ballyhackamore, with traffic reduced to one lane in each direction. This view is between Eastleigh Drive and the Belmont Church Road.
For the record, an official statement dated 16 May 2017 records “NI Water is preparing to commence work on a large-scale flood alleviation project for the Upper Newtownards Road / Knock Road area of East Belfast. The work will commence in early June and we anticipate all work will be completed in Spring 2018.
This infrastructure project will involve the upgrade of existing and installation of new sewers on the Upper Newtownards and Knock Roads, as well as sewers within some other residential streets in the area. It is being undertaken to resolve historical internal and external ‘out of sewer’ flooding issues and when complete it will increase the capacity of the existing sewerage system in the area and reduce the risk of ‘out of sewer’ flooding and environmental pollution.”
