As we have recently heard, there is a problem with some of the concrete that is present in the flats. Corrosion of the steel inside has caused flakes of concrete to fall from the surface of the concrete. This is an obvious safety hazard and we are glad to hear that the council is now going to carry out works to make the concrete safe. Notices about the works have just appeared around the estate – see below.
PRERA will continue to press the council for details of plans to carry out repairs to the surface of the concrete and to carry out preventative maintenance that will reduce the penetration of water into the concrete.
