A boulder move for douzaine at Saltpans

SALTPANS Road has had a facelift after the abandoned cars along the side of the road have finally been removed and boulders put in their place to prevent future issues.

‘I’m very proud of our work here, and it’s important to me because it was unfair to the landowner and the local residents to deal with the constant eyesore,’ said douzenier Bradford Le Flock.

Mr Le Flock and St Sampson’s constable Paul Le Pelley were on site Thursday and Friday to oversee the removal of seven abandoned vehicles and to place large boulders on the shoulder to prevent others from dumping vehicles in the same spot in the future.

‘Over the years, we’ve heard more and more residents complaining about these vehicles,’ said Mr Le Flock. ‘The support from the community for this project has been great. We’ve had people driving by the past two days honking horns and shouting encouragement.’
