Emergency work sees Weighbridge changes

Tuesday 21 March 2023


There'll be lane changes at the Weighbridge roundabout during the afternoon rush hour today as emergency cable repair works continue in the area.

The changes were announced at 13:00 and will come into affect at 15:30.

A spokesperson for Traffic and Highways Services, which coordinates road closures, said that "over the last 24 hours, engineers from Guernsey Electricity and their contractors have been working in the lower section of St Julian’s Avenue to locate a cable fault. A number of excavations have already taken place, but it is now necessary for excavations to be extended, which requires the closure of the St Julian’s Avenue lane from the Weighbridge Roundabout whilst works take place".

This work is expected to be finished before tomorrow morning's busy spells but it is expected to cause congestion on and around the roundabout during today's after school/work rush hour.

"Inevitably, the traffic management arrangements...will cause significant delays through the area. It is strongly recommended that drivers consider changing the time or route of their journey to avoid the area, especially during this evening’s peak traffic period," Traffic and Highways said.

The changes to be in place from 15:30 today include the closure of lanes on St Julian's Avenue with traffic moving up and down the hill both using the same side of the road. 

Traffic heading down St Julian's Avenue will be reduced to a single lane before entering the roundabout. Traffic from the roundabout heading up the Avenue will not be able to exit using the normal lane, instead using a temporary coned lane to the right-hand side of the traffic island at the bottom of the hill on leaving the roundabout. 

The North Esplanade will be reduced to a single lane before the roundabout.

The work on electricity supplies in the area will continue through this evening with traffic arrangements expected to be back to normal by early tomorrow morning.
