20 December 2019
The top surface of asphalt laid on Five Oaks roundabout in December 2019 has not been laid in accordance with the specifications set by Growth, Housing and Environment and is to be replaced.
The work is due to be carried out over two weekends in January, and the roundabout will be closed from:
- 1pm on Saturday, 11 January to 9pm on Sunday, 12 January
- 1pm on Saturday, 18 January to 9pm on Sunday, 19 January
Work will not be carried out earlier so that traffic over the holiday period is unaffected, although the surface will be monitored.
Highway Maintenance Manager, Rob Cabot said: “We have a very good relationship with our contractors, and will be working with them to determine what happened in this instance to reduce the chance of it happening again.’’
“We’re sorry for any disruption that the resurfacing will cause but I can assure islanders that cost of relaying the roundabout will be met by the contractor.”
