Utility works are being carried out by contractors in the first few weeks of the New Year requiring road closures on sections of La Charroterie and Le Grand Bouet.
Those who are driving are encouraged to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journey. Commuters are asked to consider using public transport, car sharing, walking or cycling. Those travelling on foot or by bicycle can often travel through works areas, if done with care.
La Charroterie will be closed between Park Street and Prince Albert Road from Tuesday 3rd to Monday 23rd January for new drainage and utility services to be installed at the former CI Tyres site, which was bought by the Guernsey Housing Association earlier this year for the development of key worker accommodation.
Islanders who are cycling will be able to dismount and walk their bikes past the works area and are asked to honour the signs requiring them to do so.
Traffic travelling towards town from Prince Albert Road and Ruettes Brayes will be diverted onto Colborne Road and Le Val des Terres.
Access to Sir Charles Frossard House and the majority of business properties within La Charroterie will be from the Prince Albert Road end (top) of La Charroterie whilst the works are undertaken.
Le Grand Bouet
Le Grand Bouet will be closed between First Tower Lane and Rue du Chateau from Monday 9th to Saturday 21st January for work being carried out on behalf of Guernsey Water.
Islanders who are cycling will be able to cycle past the works areas, with care.
Creature Comforts will be accessible from the Grand Bouet/Vrangue Hill traffic signal junction (via Elizabeth Avenue if travelling from the east).
Following completion of these works, Le Grand Bouet will be one way towards the Red Lion from Saturday 21st January to Saturday 18th February whilst scaffolding is in place.
Other works will also be undertaken during this period, including a section of the Rohais becoming one way towards town from Collings Road to Courtil St Jacques for network upgrades to be carried out on behalf of Sure.
You can see a map showing all the roadworks being undertaken by going to roadworks.gov.gg.
Roadworks are coordinated to avoid certain main routes being closed at the same time and to also coordinate roadworks according to the time of the year. There tend to be less roadworks during December as Traffic and Highway Services seek to avoid works on the main routes into St Peter Port, the Bridge and St Martin's during what is a busy period for retail, hospitality and for festive events. However, as we enter the New Year, roadworks are often required again on some main routes to enable essential maintenance of utilities or improvements to our island's infrastructure.
