Changes to mail operations in TT week 4 June 2009

Ahead of this year’s TT week, Isle of Man Post Office wishes to announce some operational changes to the delivery and collection of mail.

As a result of a substantial increase in the volume and speed of traffic on the Island’s roads during the TT Races, customers can expect traffic volumes to cause some disruption and possible delay to normal delivery and collection times. However, Isle of Man Post Office will do all possible to minimise the disruption the races will cause its customers.

On days involving road closures, this will seriously affect deliveries to addresses on the course or where access is only available via the course. We will deliver where we are able to but those addresses not receiving a delivery will have their mail delivered to them the next available day. Normal delivery times may vary. Collections may be affected especially in rural areas. Final collection times in the town areas may also vary.

On non-race days there will be a complete delivery of mail but please note there may be some delays as deliveries will include mail from the previous day for premises affected by the closure of the TT course.

During the TT period, customers and businesses that are located on the course, or are affected by road closures, can for their own convenience collect their mail from their local sorting office or have their mail delivered to another address. Anyone wishing to make alternative arrangements for delivery should telephone their local sorting office. Ramsey 816735, Douglas 698508, Peel 844590 or Southern Postal Delivery Office 823332.

Meanwhile all postal staff will be wearing high visibility jackets during their deliveries in TT fortnight so motorists can clearly see them on the road. Isle of Man Post Office would like to remind all road users that postal staff will be working throughout the Island in the increased levels of traffic and would appreciate if other motorists could take extra care.

All post offices will be open as usual during TT fortnight and Senior Race Day (Friday 12th June) with the exception of those offices located on the TT course which will be open before and after race sessions where applicable.

The Department of Health and Social Security has agreed this year to the early encashment of pensions and allowances for the convenience of customers on Senior Race Day.

Due date - Friday 12th June Encashable from - Friday 5th June

Customers with any enquiries should contact Customer Services on 664664.
