Roadworks in Enniskillen

Posted: 12 Sep, 2022

Key works will be taking place on the outskirts of Enniskillen's town centre as the SGN Natural Gas network continues to expand, providing more access to the most environmentally friendly of the commonly used heating fuels.

The works, which have been approved by DfI Roads and will be carried out by contractor Kier, are due to commence on Tuesday 20th September and run until late November. SGN Natural Gas has notified local residents and businesses who may be affected.

Wellington Road, Queen Street and Queen Elizabeth Road will have lane closures in place, while parking bays will be used on Halls Lane, Head Street, Market Street and Cross Street, ensuring that disruptions to traffic are kept to a minimum. VMS signage will also be erected on Wellington Road to alert through traffic of any upcoming disruptions.

Access will be maintained for emergency services at all times during any lane closures.

Mark Davidson, Head of Engineering, SGN Natural Gas said: "We wish to extend our sincere thanks to the public and local businesses for their patience and cooperation at this time. We will continue to do everything we can to minimise disruption and we’re confident the long-term benefits of natural gas will outweigh the temporary inconvenience. Amid the ever-growing demand for natural gas conversions, we are pleased our network will soon be reaching more properties."

The SGN Natural Gas infrastructure will ultimately play a key role in decarbonising Northern Ireland, particularly with recent biomethane developments for the network as well as the publication of the Energy Strategy which encourages consumers to switch from oil to natural gas.
