TRENCHES have been dug on a newly-resurfaced road despite an embargo on work there until at least 2010.
But Transport Minister Mike Jackson (pictured) said that the area of Route de la Haule between Beaumont and Bel Royal had been worked on four times in the last few months because there was no alternative.
He said that individual property connections were required and there was no reasonable alternative means of connection. Therefore, the embargo had to be lifted.
The four incidents related to two gas connections, one water connection and a burst water main. He was responding to a question in the States from Deputy Sean Power.
