Bus Disruption Friday 20 May 2005 16 May 2005

The Department of Tourism and Leisure regrets to inform passengers that bus services around Douglas will be disrupted on Friday May 20.

Security measures to close roads around the Villa Marina to enable the Isle of Man to host the British-Irish Council Meeting will mean no access to traffic or pedestrians along Harris Promenade, and in a block surrounding the Villa Marina Gaiety Theatre complex.

The Public Transport Division warns that services on five bus routes will be affected between 0845 and 1600 hours.

Bus diversions will be as follows:

Service 3/3C will go via Woodbourne Road and Bucks Road between Ballaquayle Road and Lower Douglas.

Service 23/24 will go via Royal Avenue, Glencrutchery Road, Woodbourne Road and Bucks Road, between Sunningdale Drive and Lower Douglas.

Service 25/26 will go via the Manx Arms, Glencrutchery Road, Woodbourne Road and Bucks Road between Avondale Road and Lower Douglas.

Service 27 will go via Bucks Road, Woodbourne Road, Glencrutchery Road and Blackberry Lane to Summerhill Road.

Service 28 will go via Bucks Road, Woodbourne Road and York Road between Lower Douglas and Victoria Road.

Throughout the road closure, buses will not serve the stops located on Douglas promenades, Ballaquayle Road shops, Port Jack, Falkland Drive and Eskdale Road. Royal Avenue will be served by services 23 and 24.

Head of Public Transport David Howard commented:

"No traffic including horse trams and pedestrians will be allowed on roads around the Villa on Friday. In addition, we anticipate there will be considerable disruption to all bus services because of the likely congestion on Bucks Road. We are just asking passengers to bear with us. We will do the best we can under the circumstances but some disruption is inevitable."
