Work is due to start on December 4th on the replacement of the St Helier Marina gates. The works are part of the Port of Jersey’s investment programme in the island’s marine leisure facilities. It will take about three weeks to complete. The storm gates, which have been in place since the marina first opened almost 35 years ago, will be removed and replaced. Access to the St Helier Marina will be restricted during the replacement to one hour either side of high water. The works will also include replacement of the lifting mechanisms and power systems. It is expected to last for another 30 years. The marina gates were built in the Netherlands and are currently being transported by sea to the Island.
