Repairs planned following RTC

Saturday 13 May 2023

The damaged lamppost at the Weighbridge Clocktower will be fixed tomorrow morning, after a car crashed into it a few days ago.

The emergency work has been scheduled for early on Sunday morning, when less traffic is likely to be using the otherwise busy route.

The junction was busy in both directions when a Smart car crashed into the lamppost on Thursday evening.

The accident happened shortly before 18:00 when the car was seen to cross from La Truchot, through the north bound carriageway, through the railings and across the south bound carriageway before coming to a halt on hitting the lamppost.

The lamppost was visibly damaged, and left leaning when the car was removed from the scene.

The two people in the car were taken to the hospital needing treatment but both were said to be in a stable condition by Friday morning.

Tomorrow morning the southbound lanes from the Weighbridge roundabout past the clocktower will be closed. A crane will be used so that engineers from Guernsey Electricity and their contractors can do their repair work.

While that work is ongoing, the roundabout will be reduced to a single lane, with traffic heading towards the Quay being diverted via contraflow lanes across the landward side of the North Esplanade.

Once the repair works are finished the traffic arrangements will return to normal.
