Road works near La Hougue Bie

06 February 2013

Resurfacing work will start on La Route de la Hougue Bie on Tuesday 12 February 2013 and continue for five weeks until mid-March 2013.
Approximately 850m of La Route de la Hougue Bie will be strengthened and resurfaced from the junction with Princes Tower Road to just beyond the junction with La Rue du Carrefour au Clercq.

As the road is narrow, both sides of the carriageway will need to be resurfaced at the same time and the whole road will be closed in sections to traffic. To minimise disruption, the works will be undertaken on weekdays from 9 am to 6 pm, outside morning peak traffic times. Motorists will be diverted along Les Grandes Routes de St Martin and Faldouet. 
Transport and Technical Services has appointed Pallot Ltd to undertake the contract, following a competitive tender process that considered price as well as resources and traffic management arrangements.
All asphalt roads require regular maintenance. This normally involves removal of any failed lower layers and replacement of the surface. If damaged or worn, manhole covers and frames are replaced and reset.

Details about the project and updates on traffic management are available online. Major stakeholders have been consulted, including the emergency services. All businesses along the route and the diversion routes will remain open as usual. 
Transport and Technical Services will be doing their utmost to minimise disruption and delays to motorists and any disturbance to householders and apologises in advance for any inconvenience caused by these essential infrastructure maintenance works.
