DOI criticised over TT footbridge decision

Crossing unnecessary, says department

Councillors in the capital have criticised government for 'ignoring' calls to replace a pedestrian footbridge on the TT course.

The Department of Infrastructure decided it was no longer necessary for a crossing on Glencrutchery Road.

Council Leader David Christian said it seemed a very strange decision considering it was "previously deemed absolutely essential" by the department.

Other members called the bridge a 'vital link' from north Douglas to upper Douglas.
