Efforts to repair major leak on Headford Road, Galway are ongoing
Efforts by Irish Water in partnership with Galway City Council to repair a major leak on the Headford Road, Galway are ongoing. We would like to apologise to motorists in the area and businesses and residents who have been affected by this unplanned event.
Leak is over three metres under dual carriageway
The leak has been located near Dunnes Stores, over three metres under the dual carriageway. Because of the topography of the ground which is soft in nature and the traffic levels, a major repair will be undertaken overnight, tonight.
Traffic management will be in place tonight
To facilitate the repair traffic management will be in place tonight with two lanes of traffic closed and traffic diverted to the adjacent lanes. We will be delivering increased levels of tankered water supplemented by bottled water to one building which houses several businesses today. These businesses are currently without a water supply.
Further updates will be available on the Supply and Service section of our website. Customers can also call the dedicated customer care helpline on 1850 278278.
