Changes could be made to Rue de Bordeaux to improve pedestrian safety, after a member of the public took to a bank of grass with what appears to be a strimmer.
The Vale Douzaine has persistently reached out to Traffic and Highway Services to try and have the corner that joins Rue de Bordeaux and Castle Road improved for pedestrians.
Subsequently, a member of the public has decided to strim the vegetation overhanging the bend to make pedestrians more visible in what has been called ‘citizen action’.
The Manager of Roads and Traffic Management at the States, Phil Ogier, has since said:
“We receive a significant number of requests to investigate road safety and traffic management matters. Inevitably this means that we must prioritise resources carefully.
“In the case of Rue de Bordeaux, Traffic and Highway Services do not have responsibility for the coastal vegetation on the dunes but there may well be measures that can be implemented on the road that could bring about improvements for pedestrian safety.
“A member of the team will be contacting the Senior Constable in the coming days to discuss the options.”
