Advanced warning of road closures during half-term

Share this page

Friday 20 October 2023

To facilitate major infrastructure projects and other work carried out by utilities, there will be several road closures in place on major roads during half-term.

During peak times, traffic delays are expected around the Rohais area where Guernsey Electricity is installing a new 33kV cable, Sure is continuing the roll-out of fibre and urgent works are required to remove trees in Les Gravees, with the latter only permitted during school holidays.

Those travelling on foot or by bicycle can often travel through works areas, if done with care. Those who are driving are encouraged to look at roadworks.gov.gg, to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journey. Those who normally drive are also asked to consider using public transport, car sharing, walking or cycling.

Details of changes to the scheduled bus routes will be available online from buses.gg or by emailing information@buses.gg.

The following works will be taking place next week:

Phil Ogier, Manager - Roads & Traffic Management, said:

"The island continues to have a large number of key infrastructure improvement projects to deliver meaning that recently it has been a busy time for roadworks, particularly to the west of town with important long-term projects being undertaken by Sure and Guernsey Electricity. It is a real challenge to facilitate these works whilst enabling other more routine projects such as servicing of important housing development sites, removing hazardous trees before the winter, and enabling maintenance of sewers by a visiting contractor."

"We know there is a balance to be struck between making our journeys as convenient as possible whilst ensuring important works to benefit us can be delivered within reasonable timeframes. We'd like to thank people in advance for their patience and ask people to plan ahead and consider using other modes of transport if you normally drive."
