Grandstand scoreboards consultation announced

Traditional or new replacements to be considered

The  future of the iconic TT Grandstand scoreboards is to be put out for consultation.

The Department for Enterprise says the worsening condition of the structure on Glencrutchery Road means it needs to be replaced.

The scoreboard was originally a mobile feature which became a permanent one in the late 1980s.

Significant repair work was carried out in 2018 to extend its operational life.

But the time has come to replace it

The department says it's fully aware of the place the scoreboard has in the history and heritage of the Island.

All ideas will be considered including a like for like replacement or something new which includes modern technology.

The consultation will run from Friday 13 December until the end of January 2020.
