Traffic lights have been installed along the seafront for the last two weeks, causing long queues and delays in both directions.

A Traffic & Highway Services spokeswoman said the project was on track to finish on schedule by the end of June.

‘The resurfacing has now switched to the final phase of works,’ she said.

‘This comprises resurfacing on the seaward side of the road, including an overlay of the cycle/footpath and completion of the new central pedestrian refuge that is designed to enhance safety and convenience.’

During the initial phases of the works there were patch repairs on the footpath, the northbound carriageway was reinforced and resurfacing has taken place.

‘In addition, a new tactile crossing has been installed across Belgrave pumping station access together with a short extension of the footpath,’ the spokeswoman said.

‘Works have commenced to install the central refuge and has included installation of electricity supplies for illuminated bollards. Further, a utility provider has taken advantage of the restricted vehicular access required during the resurfacing to install fibre optic cabling in Grand Bouet.’

The work started on 1 June and it is due to be finished by next Friday (25 June).
