Guernsey Water able to restore two- way traffic to Les Banques

May 21st, 2013 by Guernsey Water

Guernsey Water has announced that the temporary traffic lights along Les Banques was removed on 20 May 2013 and replaced with two-way traffic.

The removal of the temporary traffic lights will improve the flow of traffic and reduce the disruption that has been caused over the past two weeks.

The traffic lights were planned to be in place until Sunday 26 May 2013, so their removal is nearly a week ahead of schedule.

Andrew Redhead, Director of water services, said “Guernsey Water acknowledges the disruption that these particular roadworks have caused.”

“Working closely with our contractors Geomarine and the State of Guernsey Environment Department we have been able to introduce two-way traffic after just two weeks rather than the three weeks originally planned.”

“The Contractor’s staff have worked on Liberation Day and every weekend in order to get the work in the roadway completed as quickly as possible,” he said.

“It has been a difficult job as there are so many other underground services in the roadway, including some of the Island’s most important infrastructure cables and wires. This has meant that most of the excavation has had to be done by hand rather than using mechanical equipment – inevitably this has taken time to complete. We thank you for your patience while these essential works are being undertaken.”
