The installation of the two roundel junctions on Douglas Promenade are a small part of the £25million pound refurbishment scheme to improve the gateway to the Isle of Man’s capital, Douglas, due to complete at the end of August 2021. The second roundel will be installed at the junction of Church Road Marina by 15 July 2021.
The design philosophy behind the refurbishment of the promenade is to create a low-speed environment that promotes inclusivity for all users including pedestrians, cyclists, horse trams and vehicles. The roundels form just one aspect of this philosophy and help raise a driver’s awareness of the slow speed environment, making the junction more conspicuous and enhancing the driving experience and safety. The buff oval lines are not driving lanes but a decorative pattern.Updated on 17 June 2021
