Uisce Éireann reminds motorists of Buncrana road closure to facilitate essential works

Information below is relevant until further updates are provided here or on our Supply and Service Updates section.

We wish to advise motorists of a road closure in Buncrana over the weekend to ensure the safe delivery of essential works.

In order to facilitate works on the Buncrana Sewerage Scheme, the R238 Cockhill Road will be closed on Saturday, 25 May and Sunday, 26 May 2024.

Locals can be assured that local and emergency access will be maintained at all times. Diversions will be in place and can be viewed on the attached map below.

Uisce Éireann's Programme Manager Colm Claffey thanked the community for their patience and co-operation in advance of the works.

"Uisce Éireann acknowledges that diversions can be inconvenient for the local community and our crews will make every effort to minimise disruption to the local people. We are confident that the short-term inconvenience will be outweighed by the long-term benefits upon completion of this sewerage scheme."

"It will not only reduce the risk of sewer flooding and address non-compliant sewer overflows into Lough Swilly and the River Finn, but it will support future social and economic growth in the area."

Uisce Éireann is responsible for delivering public drinking water and wastewater services for the people of Ireland. We are committed to enabling communities to thrive by continuously upgrading and developing critical infrastructure to support sustainable growth and development, providing safe drinking water, and enhancing the environment.

Picture above is the diversion route in place with the road closure over the weekend.
