Maryville Street (looking towards Ormeau Avenue) is currently closed to motor traffic to accommodate the works. The 1832/46 map shows that this was the site of a reservoir. The 1846/52 edition describes it as “basin” just to the north of Basin Lane (today’s Bankmore Street).

The following is part of a NI Water press release
“£5 million Sewer Improvement Project Underway for Ormeau Avenue/Dublin Road Area, Belfast
05 February 2018 15:58
NI Water is pleased to announce that work has commenced on a £5 million project to improve the sewerage infrastructure in the Ormeau area, which will include Ormeau Avenue, Dublin Road, Bruce Street, Sandy Row and sections of the lower Ormeau Road.
Work will commence this week – week commencing 5th February 2018 on Adelaide Street, with work progressing from the Ormeau Avenue end. We anticipate that this phase will be completed in May 2018. During this time, a lane closure will be in place on Adelaide Street, however normal traffic flow will be maintained. Parking restrictions will be in place in the vicinity of the works. Site investigation work will continue in the car parks on Bruce Street. NI Water has liaised closely with the Department for Infrastructure and other key stakeholders during the planning of these works, and will continue to do so as the work progresses.
There has been flooding in the area in the past as a result of blockages in the sewerage system caused by fats oils and greases (FOG). This project will improve the sewerage infrastructure in the area but that doesn’t mean customers in the area should become complacent with disposing of FOG, everyone has a role to play in keeping the drains clear and fat free. The effects can be devastating and costs NI Water thousands of pounds per year to clear the blockages that occur.” 
The area was affected by a “fatberg” in mid 2017.
