Why is it closed

Probably because vehicle drivers were not taking due care of pedestrians having to use the road

To allow distancing between pedestrians during the virus crisis. The existing walkway does not allow this.

Stupid not to have put in a pavement when the major works were done. As it was , it had to be made ‘one way’ for the very same reason.

It seems that the Islands inbred drivers see the barriers as something to be pushed aside to reopen the road just for them. Pedestrians were forced to make way as a car totally ignored everything and simply barged its way through. Not only was the road previously one way before the closure but even that seems to be something to be ignored. It is only a matter of time before somebody is hurt if a more permanent solution isn’t applied.
