As always, safety remains our absolute priority and we continue to take our responsibilities to managing the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak very seriously.
We have followed government advice throughout the pandemic and continue to work within the guidelines for our sector and adapting our activities to ensure they comply with Public Health England guidelines.
Our employees, defined as key workers by the Government, have continued their critical role for the Island by keeping the highway network safe and free flowing – carrying out important tasks like repairing road defects, gritting roads, keeping the streets clean and bins emptied, and keeping the traffic signals and streetlights working. We have also been able to continue improvement schemes such as those in York Avenue and St George’s Way.
Our crews have the relevant safety equipment and have received guidance and support on hygiene standards and staff will, at all times, have access to all required construction industry PPE. For our office based staff, we are conducting a phased return to work and providing lateral flow testing to support our colleagues.
We have also undertaken contingency planning with our partners and supply chain to ensure we have the required staff and resources to undertake our responsibilities.
To assist us with managing any necessary highway reports, we would also encourage you to make use of our online reporting facilities. These can be found via the yellow button in the top right hand corner of our website homepage www.islandroads.com or via this direct link https://fms.islandroads.com/ Alternatively you can email us via firstname.lastname@example.org
We continue to keep a close eye on the advice from the Government and our work will be adjusted as necessary to comply with any subsequent changes in the guidance.
We would like to place on record thanks to our staff and our supply chain partners for all their continued hard work and dedication. We would also like to thank residents for their support and assure them that we will continue to work safely and diligently to provide the highways services they rely upon.
In accordance with Government recommendations, we have also chosen to share publicly our Covid-19 Risk Assessments. You can view these using the following links:
We will continue to keep our website updated with the latest relevant information.
We appreciate your support and understanding during these times and hope you all keep safe and well.
