The Department of Transport has given notice that it has made various orders that will will come into force during the MGP fortnight, the most notable of which are a couple of speed limits which will apply to parts of the TT course when they are open to the public.

There will be a 30mph speed limit on the A1 Douglas to Ballacraine Road from its junction with Ballafreer House Lane to a point abutting the existing permanent speed limit in Glen Vine, and there will be a 60mph speed limit on the A18 Mountain Road (TT Course) from its junction with the B12 Creg-Ny-Baa Back Road to a point abutting the permanent speed limit at Hillberry. These speed limits will apply on days on which the Manx Grand Prix practices and races are being held between Saturday 21st August 2004 and Saturday 4th September 2004.

The Department of Transport has also made a couple of orders which prohibit any vehicles from waiting on any of the roads leading into the Manx Grand Prix Course for a distance of 30 yards from 30 minutes prior to closure of the roads which make up the course. Drivers are also prohibited from leaving vehicles unattended on the course from an hour prior to the closure of the Manx Grand Prix Course for practices and races.

People are prohibited from spectating or loitering on the west side of Bray Hill Footway between Garden City Lane and the St Ninians footbridge during the Manx Grand Prix practices and races.

There will be a repeat of arrangements put in place for this year's TT which prohibit all vehicles (except emergency service vehicles and public passenger vehicles) turning right from the northbound carriageway of New Castletown Road onto Groves Road, Douglas.
