Two-Way Traffic Re-introduced Along Les Banques

Guernsey Water is pleased to announce that the temporary traffic lights along Les Banques have been removed this morning and replaced with two-way traffic.

The removal of the temporary traffic lights will significantly improve the flow of traffic and reduce the disruption that has been caused over the past two weeks. The traffic lights were planned to be in place until Sunday 26th May, so their removal is nearly a week ahead of schedule.

Temporary Traffic Lights at Les Banques for Guernsey Water Project

Guernsey Water will be laying a raw water main under Les Banques, St Sampsons from Barker’s Quarry to the grassy area on the coastline. This work will necessitate the use of temporary traffic lights on the coast road from 7th – 26th May.

The main-laying is part of the project to replace the Marais Stream clean water pumping station, which collects raw water from more than 25% of the Island’s total catchment area and is then pumped into the Longue Hougue reservoir for treatment.
