10-month roadworks back on after Canichers fiasco

The Lower Canichers will now be closed from this weekend, for ten months, after an embargo on roadworks was lifted.

It is the second attempt this month to undergo demolition work in the road.

Traffic & Highways announced earlier this month that the one-way between Le Truchot and St Julian’s Avenue would close for 10 months while a derelict building behind the Swan Inn was demolished.

However, the work was halted after it emerged that there was an embargo on all roadworks in the area until 2021.

It was said at the time that an appeal would have to be made by Avenue Properties Ltd to the Environment & Infrastructure Committee, "justifying why there are exceptional reasons" that this work could not be undertaken before scheduled resurfacing works took place.

Traffic & Highways has now confirmed that the road will close this week. 

"The Lower Canichers, St Peter Port will be closed from Friday 21 June morning for ten months, whilst demolition and construction works take place at the property behind The Swan Public House. Whilst this closure is in place, the top section of Le Truchot will be reversed, and there will be no access to Le Truchot from St Julian’s Avenue past the entrance to the Police Garage."
