Jersey road resurfaced for the first time in 23 years

A road in St Helier which was last resurfaced 23 years ago, is being repaired at a cost of £1.3 million.

The road stretches from Route de la Liberation along Commercial Buildings to the junction with Mount Bingham.

The transport authorities said it needed repairing as it had been damaged due to heavy use by large vehicles.

During the day, the road will be open to two-way traffic with lane closures, but there will be night time closures.

Historic features

At the same time, the path which runs along the harbour will be resurfaced and made more friendly for walkers and cyclists.

Some car parking will be lost, 11 spaces next to the Harbour Steps on Commercial Buildings and two near the English Harbour.

On-road parking near the boat park will be replaced with an off-road car park

Transport and Technical Services said particular care had been taken to make sure the works did not impact on any historic features associated with the harbour.

Work is due to start on Tuesday and is expected to take until mid September.
