The main contractor, Auldyn Construction, with the many sub-contractors are all working hard to minimise inconvenience and complete the work by October 2020.
Douglas Promenade Refurbishment will make the area something to be proud of and more special for our community and visitors. Click link for artists impressions of the cultural area.
This is a huge joined-up scheme – please see below phasing plans with details of where we are working and when as at July 2019. These plans have been developed from the Contractor’s Programme and highlight the main construction phases only.
Other planned works to upgrade and install new utilities throughout the works are not shown on these plans. These works will be taking place in advance of the main construction tasks and will also require similar levels of traffic management.
It is important that the extent of highway construction and statutory service replacement is not under-estimated. A close working relationship with all statutory undertakers, such as Manx Utilities, Manx Telecom, Manx Gas, Sure and Douglas Borough Council is allowing all infrastructure and services to be replaced and removed and therefore future proofed.
The contractor is working on multiple areas - see sequencing of works drawings link
These are in draft so are subject to change - we will update these as soon as possible.
Two-way traffic is being maintained along the whole length of the Promenade which removes the ability to park near the construction work area;
Alternate parking on Loch Promenade will be available on walkway from War Memorial to Bottleneck car park - no charge but a 2 hour parking order is in place. Please note this area is being co-shared with pedestrians so please adhere to the 10mph speed limit;
Free additional parking is available at Summerland (for up to 24 hours); Strathallan Walkway (for up to 2 hours) plus free overnight parking at Parade Street West, Parade Street East and The Tongue.
Paid for multi-storey car parking is also available around the town centre. Please click this link for all the details https://www.gov.im/media/51349/carparklocations.pdf
This is a landmark scheme promoting commitment and joined up working between the Department of Infrastructure and statutory undertakers.
