Pulrose Road now closed for bridge work

Traffic management now in place as site prepared

Pulrose Road has now closed as work gets underway on a £3.4 million replacement for Pulrose Bridge.

The road was set to close yesterday, but was kept open for an extra day whilst the site was prepared for the scheme to begin.

The route will remain shut while the structure is built, which the Department of Infrastructure aims to complete by TT 2022.

New entrances will be created for the Bowl car park and the Riverside Trading Estate, while diversions will be put in place on Peel Road and Groves Road.

Nearby, Quarterbridge Road remains one way heading north while works continue there, but the DoI says the impact on traffic diverted due to the Pulrose Bridge scheme will be minimal.

Pedestrian access will continue, while bus routes are being diverted, with full details of the route changes on the Bus Vannin website.

Contractors Paul Carey & Sons will be following additional Covid-19 protocols.
