DoI's director of transport leaving post

Ian Longworth is retiring

The Isle of Man’s director of transport has announced he will be leaving government.

The Department of Infrastructure says Ian Longworth is retiring as he has now ‘reached the traditional retirement age’.

Mr Longworth had planned to retire previously and had been working part time prior to the Covid pandemic.

He returned to work full time during that period but according to the DoI ‘now is the right time for him to step down’.

Interim chief executive Emily Curphey said: “I would like to thank Ian for his hard work and dedication within the department and throughout his career.

“I wish him well in his retirement.”
