Highways director apologises over Shore Road works

A meeting to discuss traffic issues took place in Abory Parish Hall

Jeff Robinson admits mistakes were made at traffic management meeting

 A senior civil servant has apologised about traffic management in the south of the Island during recent roadworks on Shore Road.


During a public meeting at Arbory Parish Hall to discuss ongoing issues in Ballabeg, Director of Highways Jeff Robinson admitted the Department of Infrastructure had got things wrong during the early stages of the scheme.


Traffic heading through Gansey could only travel one-way from Castletown during the works.


Vehicles heading to Douglas in the morning rush hour had to go through Colby and Ballabeg which led to severe congestion.


Eventually no parking zones were introduced along the route which did lessen delays.
