Longfrie Junction Filter

Media Release from Traffic and Highway Services:

Media Release

Date: 1st March 2017

New filter to be installed at Longfrie/Rue St Pierre crossroads

A new filter-in-turn will be installed at the Longfrie/Rue St Pierre crossroads on Sunday 5th March, weather permitting.

The installation is the next step in efforts to improve safety at the junction, following on from recently completed work to increase visibility for vehicles exiting La Rue St. Pierre.

Reducing approach speeds along La Route de Longfrie, and improving overall visibility, is crucial in order to limit road traffic collisions at the junction.

Through the installation of a filter-in-turn, which relies on all drivers approaching the junction to do so slowly and with care, it is anticipated that safety at this junction will be improved.

Traffic and Highway Services has been liaising closely with the Constables of St Pierre du Bois and Guernsey Police – both are supportive of the new measures.

Additional temporary signage warning of the new junction layout, along with the provision of temporary flashing speed warning equipment on approach to the junction, will be used to remind drivers of the maximum 25mph speed limit that is already in place.

As per existing policy, all new filters are initially installed on a 12 month trial basis.

Defibrillators in Guernsey

A defibrillator or Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a piece of life-saving equipment which, when used with CPR, can aid survival after a sudden cardiac arrest. They are electrical devices that analyse the heart rhythm and administer an electric shock, if necessary, to restore normal heart rhythm after someone has had a cardiac arrest.

There are a number of Public Access Defibrillators (PAD) around Guernsey, these give verbal instructions to guide a member of the public through each step with no prior training required. If you are with someone who is unresponsive and not breathing, or not breathing normally, then follow the steps to use the PAD while the St John Emergency Ambulance Service are on their way.

You will find more information on this leaflet: guernsey-defibrillator-leaflet

As you will see from the leaflet, there are only a limited number of PADs in the Western Parishes. Those around the island are in place thanks to the generosity and support of many local businesses and community groups. If you, your group, or your business, would like to find more information about providing a PAD, please visit http://www.cag.org.gg
