Set off for work early and beat the traffic jams

Traffic is going to be a bit of a nightmare while Victoria Avenue is patched up this week.

TTS are closing off a lane to traffic heading eastbound for the next five days to carry out work on the stretch of road just after the garage at Bel Royal to the junction at Rue de Galet by La Motte Ford.

The work that starts at 9.30am is likely to cause delays on both Victoria Avenue and La Route de St Aubin but it should be finished on Friday.

TTS are advising people heading into town to set off early.

There will also be delays in St Peter's Valley as work starts today on the first phase of the two-mile long pedestrian and cycle path through St Peter's Valley from Tesson Chapel to La Dimerie near the old Fantastic Tropical Gardens.

Temporary traffic lights are being set up while paths are being improved and new ones created through the valley from Tesson to Le Mont Fallu.

The work is being done between 9am and 6pm on weekdays to link the paths with bus stops and other woodland paths. Some trees will have to go but there's a new tree replanting scheme to offset any losses and the original plans have been altered to make sure three big oak trees to the South of Quetevil Mill are retained.

Phase 1 should be finished in August next year when work will start to link Le Mont Fallu to Le Mont de Louannes.

It never ceases to amaze me how something like St Peter's Valley has, as far as the States are concerned, been fit for purpose for decades and now during an economical recession they decide something needs to be done.
