West Park cycle way improvements begin

28 August 2020

The cycle path at West Park between La Fregate and the junction with Gloucester Street is being re-routed to make the area safer for both cyclists and pedestrians. 

The construction work, which starts on Tuesday, 1 September, will involve re-routing the cycle path to behind the existing wall which marks the north eastern boundary of Les Jardins de la Mer, enabling the existing footpath alongside The Esplanade – which is currently shared use – to become pedestrians only. A bus shelter will also be installed at the existing bus stop on the Esplanade to provide a safe, sheltered waiting place. 

Construction will take place Monday to Friday between 8am to 6pm over four weeks. While the work is carried out, pedestrians and cyclists are asked to take particular care as they will have to share the path in front of the old sea wall.

Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said: “This work, which was in the pipeline prior to lockdown, is an example of how we are developing infrastructure which is easier and safer for Islanders to use, and which ultimately encourages more people to switch to sustainable forms of transport.

“Changes like these will cumulatively enable us to have a transport system that actively improves the quality of life in Jersey by making cycling safer, simpler, and more appealing.”
