Prom works paused for lockdown

June completion date likely to be pushed back

Work on Douglas Promenade has been suspended under lockdown.

The construction sector was asked to stop all activity bar emergency work and repairs when the circuit break was announced this week.

Infrastructure bosses in government hope the delayed, multi-million pound project will be able to restart 'as soon as possible', in accordance with public health guidance.

The June completion date is now likely to be pushed back as a result.
