House move forces the Grange to go one-way

Friday 21 October 2022


The Grange will be one-way today and tomorrow, between 09:00 and 16:00 while a house move is taking place.

Scaffolding is also being removed from another property while the house move is taking place, to limit disruption to other road users.

The road will be one way down from the Doyle Road junction towards Upland Road.

While that restriction is in place, bus services will be diverted.

A spokesman for Traffic and Highways Services told Express that house moves do occasionally affect public roads across the island but it is rare for such a busy road as the Grange to be involved.  

"We do have a reasonable number of closures or traffic management for household removals, not normally in such a prominent road. This one way is for both a house move and scaffolding removal."

The signs will be reversed between 16:00 Friday and 09:00 Saturday so traffic can flow freely when workmen are not in the road.

"The signage for this will be turned in and then back out between each day. This traffic management had been implemented for the safe removal of scaffolding and the safe delivery by a removal company, both of which require vehicles to be stationary in the carriageway with their staff working in and around their vehicles."

THS also confirmed that there are no charges for the implementation and signage of parking suspensions or standard traffic management applications of this nature.

The Grange will also remain one way on Sunday, but with different sections affected.

This is to enable roadworks to take place including road resurfacing and footpath repairs.

The Grange will be one way on Sunday between the Grange Lodge Hotel and Brock Road, while College Street, at the foot of the Grange, will be one way between St James and Ann's Place.

THS said this work is to allow specialist repairs to be carried out.  

"On Sunday we have two separate temporary one-ways that are being implemented. College Street will become one-way from St James Street to Ann’s Place, with the diversion running through Ann’s and back up St James which is to allow stonemasons to effect repairs to the granite footway.

"The second job is for two carriageway repairs at the top of the Grange and this road will become temporarily one-way from the Grange Lodge Hotel to Brock Road, with the diversion running through Brock Road and Doyle Road. The top section of Victoria Road will be closed and made temporarily two way for residents but there will be no egress allowed onto the Grange. Signage will be located at Valnord to direct westbound traffic aiming for the Rohais to use Valnord and Mount Durand."

THS said all of the works have been co-ordinated to ensure the least disruption possible. 

"We endeavour to schedule short duration minor road repairs or roadside works on major roads, especially in the vicinity of St Peter Port, during the weekend wherever possible in an attempt to cause the least disruption. This is not always possible for contractors to provide staff for these jobs, however, all three of these repairs have been implemented by our Highways authority and the work was under the condition of it being undertaken on a Sunday in order to cause the least amount of disruption for the public."
