Ballanard Road, Douglas 28 March 2013

The Department of Infrastructure advises that major road works will commence on Ballanard Road, Douglas on Tuesday 2 April 2013.

These works involve the refurbishment of the carriageway and footways between Glencrutchery Road and Barrule Road. The work will involve full reconstruction of sections where the road structure has failed and re-surfacing of other sections where the underlying road structure is sound. The Water Authority will be refurbishing their sewers and Manx Gas are also replacing their apparatus as part of this project.

The work will be carried out in phases, initially with a total road closure between the section adjacent to the southern end of the recreation ground (No 24 Ballanard Rd) and Norwood Drive. It is anticipated that the works will last for approximately 4 weeks. Vehicular access to Norwood Drive will be maintained at all times, although access will be from the Glencrutchery Road only. Pedestrian access will be maintained along Ballanard Road.

The second phase of the works will be from Norwood Drive to Park Avenue. This work will also be undertaken during a full road closure and is expected to last for 6 weeks. During this phase access will be maintained to Norwood Drive from Johnny Wattersons Lane, Park Ave will be accessible as usual however at the junction with Ballanard Rd it will only be possible to turn left towards Glencrutchery Rd. Port E Chee Ave will only be accessible from Bray Hill. During this phase pedestrian access will also be maintained along Ballanard Rd.

The works will be totally suspended and made safe for traffic and pedestrians to use during the TT Festival.

Further phases of the work will continue after TT with the main reconstruction work being completed by mid September. The road will be opened again for the Festival of Motorcycling, and the resurfacing works will be completed by mid November 2013.

The Department has reviewed the impact of these works, along with other major roadworks taking place in Douglas at the moment. Consideration has been given to the management of traffic flow during all road works particularly to ensure that commuter routes in and out of Douglas are maintained. The impact of Ballanard roadworks will be carefully monitored.

The Department will issue further information as these works progress.

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