Danger at the hospital as drivers dodge diversions
Saturday 2nd February 2013, 3:00PM GMT.
CLOSURE of the King’s Road/Mount Row crossroads caused long tailbacks for commuters yesterday morning – and problems at the PEH.
Concerns have been raised about drivers trying to find their own way around the closure.
The junction of King’s Road, Ville au Roi and Mount Row closed yesterday for 11 days. Only traffic turning left out of King’s Road was still able to use the crossroads as Guernsey Electricity got to work.
Guernsey Police Traffic Sergeant John Tostevin has warned the public to use the official diversions. ‘We have been contacted and have carried out some checks – and the amount of people using the hospital as a shortcut is becoming dangerous and is causing problems in the hospital grounds concerning volume of cars and speed of vehicles,’ he said.
