The closure will run from the junction with Loch Promenade to the junction with Derby Road. Vehicles will be able to access the Villa Marina Gardens and businesses in the vicinity only.
The work is expected to take a maximum of five weeks, and diversions will be in place during the closure period.
The focus of the work will involve removing the traffic signals, islands and street furniture, and creating a new pedestrian crossing.
When the junction reopens, it will be a simple ‘Stop’ sign with no traffic lights, and the right-turn for south-bound traffic will be re-established.
Pedestrian access to all properties and between the promenade and Broadway will be maintained at all times. A pedestrian route across Broadway outside the works will also be in place. Please note pedestrian crossing from the seaside to landside will be at the zebra crossing on Harris Promenade.

Two-way traffic flow along the Promenade will be maintained. Drivers should be aware that the suspension of parking within coned areas will be enforced and the 20mph speed limit remains in place along the full length of Douglas Promenade.
