Changes to Castletown bus routes 'dangerous and costly' says MHK

Route change on Monday as Castle Street goes one-way

Update 1:40pm: Isle of Man Transport has reversed the plans, and the bus service will trial looping the square instead.

Planned changes to Castletown's bus routes to accommodate Castle Street going one-way for a year have been described as 'dangerous and costly'.
