Minister admits he has 'reservations' about them

Uncontrolled road crossings around the Isle of Man are being reviewed after the infrastructure minister admitted he has 'reservations' about them.

Tim Crookall says any changes that are needed will be implemented as soon as possible.

The issue was raised in the House of Keys this week by Arbory, Castletown and Malew MHK Jason Moorhouse who quizzed him on the safety of a red line crossing in Ballabeg:

Mr Crookall also revealed the scheme had been successful in reducing the speed of motorists through the area to below 25 miles per hour.

Work has now been completed to remove an uncontrolled crossing in St Johns.

It follows calls for an audit from the Coroner of Inquests following the death of a cyclist.
