Two week closure for Mountain Road

Repairs to damaged Bungalow section

Drivers who use the Mountain Road are being warned the route will be closed for two weeks in April for major works.

A project to repair a badly rutted 500 metre section at the Bunglaow will being on Saturday 8 April.

The Department of Infrastructure says it'll mean a full closure to all traffic from Ramsey Hairpin to Creg-ny-Baa for the fortnight.

The road will be planed and resurfaced - to improve ride quality and safety for TT competitors and all road users. 

While the road's closed, teams will erect one-way signage for this year's TT, carry out road lining, clear ditches and replace damaged signs.

The DoI says its teams will work extended hours to reduce disruption to the public, and has promised the road will open before 23 April if the scheme finishes ahead of schedule.
