P&R president comments on tunnel link to Jersey

16th August 2019

Deputy Gavin St Pier says a feasibility study is the correct way forward to see whether there could be a tunnel connecting Guernsey to Jersey, and then Jersey to France.

The Policy & Resources president says the tunnel could change the islands forever.

He says we need to collect as much information as possible before making such an important decision.

In an interview with Island FM Deputy St Pier said; ‘the first step is to see… is it possible and then consider what the advantages, and the advantages could be considerable, and indeed what the disadvantages are,’

He was also quick to reassure islanders that much time will be given to public debate regarding the proposition, before any formal decisions are made.

‘There would certainly be plenty of opportunity for public engagement on it if it were to progress any further beyond the feasibility study,’.
