Jersey States spend 5m on flood protection project

Post by GD on Tue 14 Feb 2012, 6:49 pm

More than 5m is being spent on a new flooding project in St Helier by the States of Jersey.

Transport and Technical Services said a 20-metre deep access shaft, an overflow chamber and new tunnels would ensure the town's system could cope.

The current system collects rain water and sewage together, but this project will see the two separated and diverted into a sewer which bypasses the town.

The department hopes this will reduce the risk of flooding.

The six-month project, due to be finished by 2013, will see the town lose 85 parking spaces as the new tunnels are built.

Work has already begun in Phillips Street and Providence Street and the main phase is due to start in August.
