18/05/2016Information regarding Hotel la Tour development

I understand that there have been a number of individuals alleging that heavy vehicles are using the High Street from the Hotel La Tour site, but to date have failed to give myself (the Connetable) or the Honorary Police any evidence that this has taken place.

The Roads Committee who are responsible for Parish Roads have in place a Traffic Management Plan which the contractors have to abide by when accessing the site and I have no reason to believe that this has not been adhered to.  The owner of the site and contractors do have in place the necessary insurance should damage be proven against either party but at present no such evidence exists.  Photographic surveys have been carried out by the contractors on both Mont de la Rocque and the High Street prior to the work commencing on site.

While the rock berm was being installed to secure the rear wall of the site, permission was given by me to allow vehicles under the weight limit for the road (7.5 T) to access the site from Mont de la Rocque, unload and then exit down the High Street onto Mont les Vaux (rather than using the traffic light system that was agreed previously), to ensure the site was made safe as soon as possible and that any further damage to Mont de la Rocque was prevented.

During the period of repairs there was undoubtedly a large number of vehicles using the High Street for the five days the work was in progress but none were 'heavy vehicles'.  All the vehicles used for this work, even fully laden, were under the 7.5T weight limit and unladen were probably nearer 2.5 T which is under the limit of the road (Rue du Crocquet).  I denied the contractors request on the day of the landslip to use heavy vehicles to load rock on to the site which is why so many smaller vehicles were used.

The Roads Committee are both monitoring and managing the use of the roads near the site and I have no reason to believe that any damage has been done to any part of the High Street.  The Roads Committee have commissioned Hartigans to produce survey reports consider what the weight restrictions should be on Rue de Crocquet, Mont de la Rocque and Rue au Moestre and until their reports have been received no heavy vehicles are allowed to use these roads.
