Toucan crossing at Railway Walk

02 August 2021

Walkers, runners and cyclists will now be able to access a popular St Brelade spot more safely after a new toucan crossing was opened on Friday 30 July at a section of the Railway Walk.

The Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said that the aim of the crossing was to make the Railway Walk safer and more accessible for Islanders, encouraging more people to become active.

 Deputy Lewis officially opened the crossing on La Rue du Pont Marquet, where the road meets the Railway Walk, allowing pedestrians and cyclists to cross safely.

 The crossing will also ensure that children in St Brelade who walk or cycle to Les Quennevais and Mont Nicolle schools can enjoy a safer route, as part of the Government's Safer Routes to Schools initiative.

Deputy Lewis said: "The Government is committed to improving the safety of our roads for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as making it more inviting to walk or ride a bike as opposed to travelling by car. As part of our Inspiring Active Travel policy, we are not only increasing road safety but also encouraging people to use greener modes of transport. This crossing, along with other projects underway, will help us achieve our goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2030."
