MHK asks for Prom timetable rethink

DoI boss appealed for reason

Infrastructure bosses are being urged to look at the timescale of plans to refurbish Douglas promenades.

 

The £20.7 million redevelopment will start in September 2018 after gaining Tynwald approval last week.

 

It will take an estimated three years to complete and will also see the horse trams retained with a double track in the centre of the road between Strathallan and Castlemona Avenue before switching to a single track at the side of the road.

 

Middle MHK Bill Shimmins is hopeful the overall timescale can be revised.
