Wastewater extension to close St Andrew’s Road from 4 February to 17 March 2014

January 28th, 2014 by Guernsey Water

Guernsey Water is advising islanders that part of the current phase of its wastewater network extension programme will involve closing St Andrew’s Road from 4 February to 17 March 2014.

The road will close from Les Poidevins junction to Rue de la Boullerie junction, and the diversion route will utilise Les Poidevins and L’Ecluse.

The project to extend the main sewer has incorporated a number of roads in the area, and has approximately 3 months left to run.

Once completed, the extended sewer will allow up to 110 properties to connect and will incorporate the Naftiaux housing estate.

The final part of the project will see completion of the remaining section in Rue de la Boullerie close to the Naftiaux Estate and connection of the flows from the Estate in late March/early April.

Andrew Redhead, Director of water services, said “Guernsey Water acknowledges the disruption that the roadworks will cause, but we are committed to extending the wastewater network in order to reduce our reliance on cesspits where it is cost-effective to do so.”

“We appreciate that St Andrew’s Road is one of the Island’s main routes, but fortunately the diversion is fairly simple and shouldn’t increase journey times by much.”

More information on the traffic management arrangements for the area can be obtained from the Island Roadworks website.
