October 19th, 2012 by Guernsey Water
Guernsey Water will close Les Cornus in St Martin on Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 October 2012 in order to fell a number of large pine trees at one of its borehole sites.
Local contractors Special Branch will be carrying out the work, which has become necessary due to two recent incidents of falling branches on the Guernsey Water site.
Andrew Redhead, Director of water services, said “for health and safety reasons it has become essential that we remove these trees. They are very large, and we do not want to risk any further incidents of falling branches that overhang this very busy road.”
“We appreciate that the recent incidents have already necessitated traffic management measures in the area, but we hope the public understand that these works will stop any incidents re-occurring. Through careful planning with the Environment Department’s traffic team we have planned these works and the associated diversions to take place in the school half-term period.”
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused to the public.”
More information on the traffic management arrangements for the area can be obtained from the States of Guernsey Environment Department Roadworks website.
