The DoI has said that the road construction along Douglas promenade is now complete, with the final length of surface course being laid this week on Central Promenade.

The £26m project, which has been beset with problems, is over a year complete and won’t be finished until next year. But even then, the horse tram tracks and other parts of the scheme which were cut from the scope, will still need Tynwald approval before they go ahead.

A statement said :’This is a major milestone to reaching the end of the Refurbishment Scheme and allows all significant traffic management and temporary traffic lights to be removed, allowing traffic to once again flow freely.All highway parking spaces are now accessible ahead of the start of late night shopping, with additional temporary parking on the walkway returning on the 25th November.’
