Work is continuing at Cripple Gate The Saint Martin Community and its Water and Sanitation Establishment (EEASM) are informing the public that the work currently being carried out on the drinking water system between the Agrément roundabout and the intersection of Friars' Bay require day interventions.
This involves replacing the old central pipeline along the RN7 with a new pipeline. This part of the work could not be carried out at night because the workers needed maximum visibility of the underground networks to carry out the drilling to install the new pipeline.
These day jobs were scheduled Thursday 27 and Friday 28 November between 8h30 and 18h, resulting in an alternating traffic that greatly slowed traffic during peak hours.
The Community and the EEASM apologize for this inconvenience and recall that the replacement of pipes older than thirty years is more than necessary, as this work has never been done in the past.
The workers will be working again all weekend (29 and 30 November), knowing that a concrete phase to cover the new pipeline is planned between the 1er and 8 December, which punctuated the work in this sector.
The Saint-Martin Community and the EEASM are grateful to the public for their patience and demand that the signage put in place be respected until the end of the work, for the safety of workers and road users.
The President of the Territorial Council, Aline Hanson,
EEASM President Louis Fleming
