Glencrutchery Road/Victoria Road works tonight

Work will take place overnight on additional traffic management measures designed to ease the flow of traffic in the area of Governor’s Dip and Glencrutchery Road, Douglas.

Alterations will be made following a review of the changes which have been in place since Monday 15 June to accommodate Douglas Promenade being one-way north-bound between Victoria Road and Summerhill.

Lining work will take place between 10pm and 6am, and motorists are asked to drive with extra consideration between these times in order to protect workers.

Once complete, the temporary measures will remain in place until the Promenade returns to two-way traffic in early September.

Along with improved road markings and signage, the main change for motorists will see a 20mph speed limit introduced between the Gate House at Government House and Third Avenue.

As the roundabout at the top of Victoria Road is not currently being used, south-bound traffic will continue to travel straight through the junction to Glencrutchery Road, while a left-hand filter lane will serve those wishing to approach Douglas from Victoria Road.

A stop sign is now in place at the top of Victoria Road and motorists wishing to travel from Victoria Road towards Onchan are required to go straight on towards the temporary north-bound lane at Governor’s Dip.

Motorists travelling north will no longer be able to turn right into Victoria Road.

Traffic light timings have been increased at St Ninian’s crossroads to help traffic turning left, towards Broadway. Cyclists using the temporary bus/cycle lane and who wish to proceed straight on at St Ninian’s crossroads must not wait in this lane.

The new layout will continue to be monitored while road users become used to the changes, and will be subject to further review if deemed necessary.

Motorists are asked to be patient and allow extra time for journeys.
