The walkway, which is costing £130,000, will run along the top of the sea wall and through a grass verge on St Clement’s Coast Road at Le Hocq. A spokesman for the Infrastructure Department said the project, which started a week ago, was ‘challenging’.
‘There is not a lot of space. We are currently taking the top of the sea wall off and putting larger coping stones on top [for people to walk on]. This will allow us to get past the trees – it is quite a challenging area,’ he said.
‘Once we manage to get past the trees it will move into the grass verge higher up before going back onto the road.’
He added: ‘Unfortunately, it cannot continue off-road because of space limitations but visibility at the top of the road for motorists and pedestrians is much better.’
The project is due to be completed in three months.
