Further repairs required at Rousse

Tuesday 08 February 2022


Work undertaken recently on the pier at Rousse has revealed additional areas in need of repair.

The original work was scheduled as part of the States’ ongoing programme of repairing and maintaining Guernsey’s coastal features, such as piers, slipways and paths.

The project will now be paused and restarted in March when the pier can be accessed on the next spring tide.

Many voids in the concrete have been filled and repointed along the seaward side of the pier and good progress has been made rebuilding the affected areas.

Scaffolding on the pier will remain in place until all work is complete. Extensions have been added to the scaffolding to make it more visible and signs will be placed at the top of the pier to warn swimmers and boat owners. 

People are reminded to continue exercising caution when using the pier, particularly on high tides. 

Coastal features differ from defences in that they do not offer significant protection from flooding or erosion, but they contribute to the Island's unique coastal beauty and often provide access to beaches and bays.

Repairs were also carried out on piers at Portelet recently. That work has concluded successfully. 

The piers are the responsibility of the Committee for the Environment & Infrastructure.
