Essential work to pipe collapse on Gas Works Steps

Mon, 14 Jun 2021

Manx Utilities have applied for a closure of the steps that link South Quay with Douglas Head Road to undertake essential repairs to a surface water drainage pipe for a period of four weeks.

The work would commence on Monday 5th July 2021.

During a recent CCTV survey of the 225mm surface water pipe, a number of defects were identified including two localised collapses which require urgent remediation and backfilling of voids created by the defects located beneath the steps.

 Once the remedial work has been completed Manx Utilities’ contractor, Environmental Techniques, will refurbish the pipe using a specialist lining technique.

During the lining installation three way traffic lights will be in place for 1 day on the lifting bridge roundabout to accommodate the large vehicles and plant required for this phase of the works.
