On Wednesday 18 September 2013, resurfacing works will commence on Rue a Don for a six month period. At the end of the project in April 2014, the road will be resurfaced and strengthened from Rue des Pres Trading Estate to Gorey Village Main Road.
The project has been divided into four sections but will be carried out as three schemes in the following order:
- Section 2 from Rue de Radier to Grouville School starting on 18 September 2013 to mid-November 2013
- Section 1 from Rue des Pres Trading Estate to Rue de Radier starting in mid-November 2013 to January 2014
- Sections 3 and 4 from Grouville School to Gorey Village Main Road starting in January 2014 to April 2014
Works will be carried out Monday to Friday between 9am and 6pm with all road works being undertaken under a full road closure. Some exceptional evening or weekend work may be required, but this will be kept to an absolute minimum. In an effort to reduce the overall time taken for the project, TTS has also permitted adjacent lane closures for kerbing and footway works. In some instances this will mean that as well as fully closed sections of the road there will also be a single lane closure further along the road managed by traffic lights.
The diversion routes that will be signposted are:
La Grande Route de St Clement for closures between La Rue des Pres Trading Estate and the junction with La Rue de Ville Es Renauds;
La Rue du Boulivot, La Route de la Francheville, La Route de la Hougue Bie, La Rue d’Aval and Le Mont Gabard for closures between the junction with La Rue de la Ville Es Renauds and Gorey Village Main Road.
Signage will be installed at the beginning and end of each section of road closure informing the public which roads are open and closed.
In all cases access will be maintained to properties and businesses along the route of the resurfacing and the details of this will be arranged with the property or business owners when the contractors are on site.
The road resurfacing works have been coordinated to follow the Jersey Electricity Company’s (JEC) infrastructure reinforcement works. The JEC has just completed the installation of the ducting for this cable.
As part of Section 3 and 4, TTS will also be constructing traffic calming between Grouville School and Lavender Villas. The scheme will include widening the pavement to connect the existing cycle path that runs alongside the common, to Grouville School. In order to create the space for the widened footway, the junction of Rue a Don and Rue de Ville Es Renauds will become a mini-roundabout.
TTS will endeavour to limit disruption to residents, businesses and road-users. Should you have any queries or concerns regarding the resurfacing works, please contact TTS by telephone on 445509 and ask for Highway Maintenance, or email email@example.com.
