Minister commits to Douglas Prom work

Hopes work will start next year

Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer says he hopes work on the full refurbishment of Douglas Promenade will begin next year.

The stretch between Castle Mona Avenue and Summerhill will be resurfaced in stages from this Friday.

Yesterday in Tynwald, a figure of just over three million pounds was quoted as having been spent on the refurbishment scheme so far.

Mr Harmer says he is determined to get on with the job after decades of delays.
