Government alerts Public to Traffic diversions

AquaGib is to excavate a series of trial pits along Europa Road, from Brympton Estate to the Garrison Gymnasium, to allow technicians to plan the next phase of the on-going infrastructure improvement programme in the south district.

These excavations will commence on Monday April 25, from 9.30am to 1.30pm on a daily basis, and are to be completed on Thursday April 28.

Portable traffic signs will be erected to warn and advise drivers and the lanes will be demarcated using traffic signs and traffic cones. "Stop" and "Go" signs will be used as and when required to control traffic flow. Drivers are urged to drive with care when approaching and driving past the work site.


King's Street will be closed to vehicular traffic, also from Monday, for an initial period of no less than 2 months. This is so that the hoarding along the north boundary of the development at 55 Line Wall Road can be re-aligned to allow the construction works to progress to first floor level. Once the construction phase has reached first floor level, the line of the hoarding along King's Street will be set back to the present line and King's Street re-opened to authorised vehicular traffic. Pedestrian access will remain available at all times.

Meanwhile, as a result of works to re-site the tower crane at Varyl Begg Estate, the northern access road in to the estate will be closed during working hours (8am to 6pm) for a maximum period of three days as from Monday. During this period the northern part of the estate will be made into a two-way system to allow access for residents into the area. Temporary traffic signs will be placed to direct drivers accordingly. Parking restrictions will also be applied as demarcated by temporary no parking signs. Overnight parking up until 8am will be permitted. During the re-siting operations site operatives will assist pedestrian movement along the affected area.
