St Lawrence road repairs start Monday

13 July 2016

Work to make the St Lawrence main road safer for walkers and smoother for cars starts next week and lasts until the last Sunday in August.

The Department for Infrastructure (DfI) will start resurfacing La Grande Route de St Laurent from Mont Cambrai to La Ruelle on Monday 18 July. It is due to be finished by Sunday 26 August. The road will be closed to through traffic during working hours from 9.15am until 6pm.  Diversions will be in place via La Grande Route de St Jean and St Peter’s Valley. Businesses on and around the route will remain open and can be accessed by the diversions.

This road is a high priority for maintenance as it is one of the Island’s main north-south arterial routes and is showing signs of fatigue and has a poor ride quality.  It passes through the village area that includes several amenities such as the parish primary school, parish hall, pub and shop, as well as private homes all generating considerable pedestrian activity.  Accordingly, some road safety improvements will be incorporated into the resurfacing scheme.

Work will be carried out in phases starting from Mont Cambrai working north. The Route 7 bus will be diverted to La Grande Route de St Jean in both directions.  A shuttle bus will operate between Carrefour Selous and Mont Felard following the local diversion routes, which will include Waterworks Valley during some phases.

There will be no work on Thursday 11 August, Battle of Flowers Day.
