Significant disruption expected along Les Banques from next week

Monday 24 May 2021

Temporary traffic lights will go up at Les Banques for four weeks, starting from Tuesday 1 June.

Contractors will be carrying out planned road resurfacing works to the main road. The opportunity will also be taken to make some changes "to enhance safety and convenience" for pedestrians near the Red Lion Roundabout.

A new central refuge with illuminated bollards will be installed just to the south of the slipway, which Environment & Infrastructure say "will make it safer and easier for wheelchair users, people with buggies and people with visual impairments in particular to cross this busy stretch of road."

The works are expected to take four weeks to complete, during which time traffic flow past the area will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.

A spokesperson for E&I said: "As works take place at the Red Lion Roundabout, access to and from the Grand Bouet will change and signs will be placed to advise drivers of access arrangements.

"During the final phase of the works, the pedestrian footpath and cycle path in the area will be closed and cyclists will need to dismount to pass the works area.

"Motorists should be aware of traffic delays in the area over the course of the works and drivers are advised to consider alternative transport methods or routes and to allow longer times for their journey."
