This morning Transport and Technical Services (TTS) held a meeting with the Planning Department, the Parish of St Helier and their contractors with the purpose of accelerating the work to make the rock face safe and to lay the French link cable on Mount Bingham, both of which require the road to be closed to through traffic.
All parties are working together to progress the works so that the road can be re-opened as soon as possible.
TTS is proactively managing the operation of all traffic lights in the area to maximise traffic flow through the tunnel and along La Route du Fort.
All parties have also been liaising with the Health and Safety Inspectorate and the Environment Department for these works.
TTS wishes to apologise for the traffic delays caused by the closure of this route. A further update will be given as soon as more information becomes available.
