Possible water disruption tomorrow in Brannockstown, Carnalway

There may be low water pressure or disruption to supply in the Brannockstown and Carnalway areas, due to works by Irish Water, writes Brian Byrne.

The work involves essential valve repairs in a number of areas, relating to the Barrow Extension project to increase water supply in the Greater Dublin Area by some 18 million litres a day.

Tomorrow's works will be between 8am-6pm, and in addition to those local communities mentioned, supply may be affected in Broadleas, Ardenode, Old Connell, Caragh, Naas west, Naas town centre, Spring Gardens,  Naas North, Rathaskar Heights, Kilashee, Naas East, Two Mile House, Ladytown and surrounding areas.

Further works will take place from Monday 18 January 2021 to Friday, 26 March 2021 and will include the construction of 3km of new water main between Killashee and Naas via the Rathasker Road and two new booster pump stations, one at Brannockstown and one at Carnalway. To facilitate the safe delivery of these works, a temporary road closure will be in place on the L-6074 (at Carnalway) from the junction of the R448 (Kilcullen to Naas Road) to the junction of R412 (Brannockstown to Naas Road).

Diversion routes will be in place and clearly signposted and local and emergency access will be maintained for residents for the duration of this temporary road closure. Impacted residents and businesses in the area will be directly notified.

The Irish Water customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact Irish Water on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.
