East Douglas MHK brings surprise amendment
The horse trams will continue to run the full length of Douglas Promenade.
That’s after Tynwald narrowly backed a move by East Douglas MHK Chris Robertshaw.
Plans for the existing twin tracks to remain between Broadway and Summerhill were supported.
Mr Robertshaw then called for a new single tram line to be laid between the War Memorial and Sea Terminal.
In a combined vote, 17 members voted for the amendment - while 14 opposed.
Garff MHK Daphne Caine was one of those to lend her support - but described the ongoing tug-of-war over the horse trams as 'groundhog day'.
