Reconstruction of A5 Douglas Road, Castletown 12 October 2007

The Department would like to remind the public that work on reconstructing the A5 Douglas Road will commence on Monday, 15th October.

The project will take approximately five months to complete and covers the section of road from the Airport Southern Roundabout to the entrance to King William’s College.

The road will remain open for the duration of the scheme, with the exception of a number of off-peak closures for the final road surfacing at the end of the works.

There will, however, be delays to traffic throughout the roadworks, with traffic signals and a 20mph speed limit, and motorists are advised to allow extra time for their journeys. Alternative routes for through traffic to and from Douglas will be signed at Malew Road, Castletown and at the Whitestone in Ballasalla. Priority will be given to maintaining access through the roadworks for residents, emergency services and buses.

Notice of the works has been given to residents affected by the roadworks and advance notice signs have been in place for some time.

Bruce Hannay, Director of Highways, explained:

‘It will be necessary for us to use 24-hour traffic signals, manned at peak times. We will endeavour to reduce delays and congestion and maintain access to all the properties/driveways, whilst liaising with any residents who may be affected.’
