In the interests of public safety, Northern Ireland Water would like to inform the public that the car park at Ballinrees Reservoir, Windyhill Road, Coleraine, will close from April 1st 2019.
NI Water has taken this decision having been made aware that the sight lines coming out onto the Windyhill Road, are inadequate and constitute a Health and Safety hazard.
NI Water will place signage at the carpark on Monday 11 March outlining this information.
The car park will no longer be available for use at Ballinrees Reservoir, Windyhill Road, from April 1 2019.
NI Water regrets the decision and would like to thank the public for their co-operation. Safety is paramount and this closure is unavoidable.
Commenting on the decision Councillor William McCandless said ‘I am very disappointed to hear this as it is a very popular walkway for many of the people to take their families to and also their pets for exercise.
It is a pity we could not have looked at this problem sooner to have improved the sightlines, maybe this is something we look at for the future however I do realise that health and safety is paramount.’
