18/05/2018Final Resurfacing

The Department for Infrastructure is due to commence the final part of highway maintenance work in St Peter’s Valley in late May / early June 2018.

The maintenance work will involve the provision of a new surface called Microasphalt (MA) which will be laid directly on top of the existing road surface. This resurfacing treatment has been completed successfully on a number of projects throughout Jersey. A selection of some of these projects are listed below:

 Green Road – St Clement

 A section of La Route D'Ebenezer - Trinity

 Mont Cochon – St Helier

The contractor undertaking the work will be Eurovia Ltd who have over 30 years’ experience working in the highway industry.

The key advantages in adopting this form of resurfacing treatment are listed below:

 Speed of construction is significantly quicker when compared to alternative forms of resurfacing;

 Highly cost effective solution when compared to other forms of surface treatment; this has enabled St Peter’s Valley and St Aubin’s Road to be resurfaced from Rue de Galet to the Elms.

The attached map indicates the full extent of the areas where this maintenance work will be undertaken and also indicates the traffic management and working hours for each phase. Please note the anticipated start date for the work is end of May 2018 with a completion date of mid-June 2018. We will contact you shortly with anticipated start / finish dates for each phase.

To enable the work to be undertaken in a safe and efficient manner, we have to undertake the majority of the work under full road closures. For each phase of the work, a detailed diversion route will be provided, which will be issued at a later date. Access to premises will be maintained at all times other than those days when surfacing work is being undertaken.

The Department for Infrastructure apologises in advance for any disruption caused by these works. Should you wish to discuss any item mentioned above or require further information please do not hesitate to contact Barry Nolan at barry.nolan@gov.je or on Tel 07829 782925.

01/05/2018Guidance on Asian Hornets

​The Department of the Environment have issued the following guidance on what to do if an Asian Hornet nest is found.

Asian hornet guidance

 Asian hornets are black with yellow legs, and a yellow-orange band on the bottom of their abdomen (images below).

 Look out for nests – they could be sited high or low, for example, in trees, bushes, hedgerows or structures like sheds or roof spaces.

 People working outdoors in the countryside or in gardens should take a good look around an area for nests before starting work.

 If you see a nest, don’t go near it. Stay ten metres or more away, and don’t touch, disturb or cause vibrations around the nest. A nest can contain up to 3000 hornets and hornets may vigorously defend their nest.

 Report hornet or nest sightings to the Department of the Environment on +44 (0) 1534 441600, or environmentenquiries@gov.je. An officer or registered pest controller will come to identify the nest and remove it.

 Lone hornets aren’t more of a risk to human health than other wasps, but their sting can be more severe and they may sting more than once.

 The Asian hornet sting may present more of a risk of a severe allergic reaction or anaphylactic shock than other wasp stings. If you suffer from a wasp or bee allergy, take your usual precautions https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/bites-insect/pages/introduction.aspx .

Hornets play a crucial role in the ecosystem in controlling other insects and pollinating fruit and flowers, but the Asian hornet is a predator of native insects and is a threat to honey bees and all other pollinators.

The Department of the Environment will continue to work closely with Jersey beekeepers and pest controllers to find and remove nests until the hornets hibernate later this year.
