St John’s Village Improvement Scheme

​​​About the project

The Minister for Infrastructure has approved the St John’s Village improvement works.

The works are due to start in Autumn 2024.

Improvements include:

  • new zebra crossing at the Parish Hall
  • new zebra crossing on La Route du Nord linking to Maison Le Vesconte
  • pedestrian refuge
  • some widening of pavements
  • speed limit change to 20 miles per hour

The designs aim to be consistent with St John’s village.

Parish Hall crossing

A zebra crossing to the Parish Hall will be provided by St John’s Inn, with belisha beacons and a new streetlight to meet safety standards.

The pavements either side will be widened, to make sure pedestrians wanting to cross can see approaching traffic. 

There will be granite paving in keeping with the setting of the Parish Hall.

La Route du Nord crossing

A zebra crossing on La Route du Nord will be provided south of La Rue de l’Etocquet and link to Maison Le Vesconte.

The road will be narrowed at the crossing for the pavements to be widened on both sides. This will make sure pedestrians can see approaching traffic.

We’ll also improve the street lighting.

La Route de Saint Jean Improvements

The right turn lane will be removed at the main road junction by the church to create space for better pavements and a new pedestrian central refuge.

The refuge will link to the footpath on the western side of St John’s Parish Church, and where the St John’s Memorial Gardens are being proposed.

A widening of the southern pavement, and the narrowed junction with La Route du Nord, will reduce car dominance on the entry to the village.

Speed limit change

A 20 miles per hour zone will be introduced to make walking in and around the village safer.

Public exhibition of the designs

An exhibition explaining the planned works will be at St John’s Parish Hall on:
