Preparations for a new energy cable between Jersey and Guernsey will get underway this week, closing part of the Greve de Lecq promenade for around three weeks.

It is part of a bigger Guernsey Electricity project to reconnect Guernsey to the shared energy cable importing low carbon electricity from France. The connection between the islands failed in October 2018 and Guernsey has been relying on its own electricity since then.

Sharon Watchorn, project manager at Guernsey Electricity said reconnecting the island is "vital".

Work will take place between 9am and 5pm on week days over June and July before the new cable is delivered in October.

The beach will remain open and all local businesses and attractions will still be accessible but a small section of the promenade will be closed.

Access will be from both Le Mont de Ste Marie and Mont de la Greve de Lecq and all car parks will be available as usual.
