Bagatelle Road Resurfacing Begins

Work starts today (19 July) to resurface part of Bagatelle Road and Princes Tower Road.

It'll take around four to five weeks and will take place in four stages.

The work on Bagetelle Road is between the junction of Patier Road and Five Oaks roundabout.

It'll take place on weekdays between 9am and 6pm and on Sundays (if needed) between 9am and 9pm.

On Princes Tower Road, work is not due to start until Tuesday 27 July.

That resurfacing is between Five Oaks roundabout and the end of the junction with La Rue du Pre.

It'll take place on weekdays between 7:30am and 7pm and Sundays between 9am and 7pm.

Five Oaks roundabout will stay open throughout the project.

"We target certain areas of the island for school summer holidays and as you can imagine, Bagatelle Road is the feeder to the St Saviour school cluster.

"Effectively, the school summer holidays are about the only time of the year we can work in an area like that because we don't have to worry about the school traffic.

"Jersey needs to maintain the roads, which basically means we have to resurface them at intervals.

"Bagatelle Road is in need of resurfacing, its time has come as it were." - Rob Cabot, Principal Engineer.

There are more details on the works here.

Work is also due to start on 2 August on resurfacing La Route Orange between the junction with La Rue de Sergente and Le Chemin de Maudelaine.

A new zebra crossing will also be installed outside the entrance of La Moye School.

More details on that project can be found here.
