Albert Pier upgrade – delivery of support structures

From Port of Jersey
1st April 2021

Enabling work continues in preparation for the installation of new pontoons as part of the Albert Pier upgrade.

The coming weeks will see the delivery of 15 x 24-metre long piles to the construction site on the Albert Pier. These steel plate hollow tubes are the support structure for the pontoons and will be embedded into the seabed as part of the construction project, which is due to start w/c 12 April 2021.

The first set of four piles will be delivered on the evening of Tuesday 06 April at approximately 7pm. They are being transported on a specialist trailer and will be escorted from the Elizabeth Harbour trailer park and delivered to the site in front of the Albert Pier Terminal. As a result, motorists are being advised to avoid the area as Route du Port Elizabeth from the roundabout near Maritime House southbound will be closed for approximately 30 minutes.  Access to the Albert Pier will still be possible although the road will be reduced to a single lane for a short duration with drivers being asked to proceed with caution and the disruption in this area is likely to be for a further 30-minutes. Pedestrian access along the Albert Pier and to businesses is uninterrupted via the top walkway.

Further deliveries of the remaining piles, with the same measures in place, will take place on Monday 19 April, Tuesday 04 May and Thursday 13 May 2021.
