New Castletown Road, Douglas - Roadworks 24 August 2012

The Department of Infrastructure advises that work will re-start on New Castletown Road Douglas, between Groves Road and Saddle Road on Monday 3rd September 2012. This is a continuation of the works which were carried out before the MGP between Quarterbridge and Saddle Road. Once exposed, the Department found that parts of the carriageway needed to be completely reconstructed as the road foundations had failed.

The works to reconstruct the carriageway and the footway are programmed in two phases; under the first phase, anticipated to last 10 days, works will be completed under a one-way system, with traffic travelling southbound, out of Douglas between Millmount Industrial Estate and Ballaughton Close. The junction at Saddle Road will be completely closed as the inbound and centre lanes are totally reconstructed. Traffic heading into Douglas from the South should use either Cooil Road/Vicarage Road or Kewaigue/Old Castletown Road to avoid delays at Groves Road traffic signals. Bus services will operate on revised routes, with additional buses being provided to maintain services to residential areas.

For the second phase, also expected to last 10 days, the Saddle Road junction will be re-opened and two way traffic will once again flow on the New Castletown Road, although the junction will be controlled by traffic lights as the outbound lane is reconstructed. Access to Spring Valley Terrace will be maintained throughout this period.

Mylchreest’s garage and car show room and other adjacent business premises will remain open throughout this period.

The Department would like to thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation. If you have any concerns or queries regarding the work, please phone 850000.
