We would like to make our visitors aware of the extensive refurbishment project currently underway along Douglas Promenade. We are delighted that work has re-commenced with the contractor strictly adhering to the Isle of Man Government's Covid-19 measures in place.
The Isle of Man Government has invested £25 million in improving this major gateway on the Island. The Douglas Promenade Refurbishment Scheme commenced in September 2018 with a planned completion date of April 2021.
This project sees the first major refurbishment of the Promenade since it was built in 1868 and will promote better vehicular traffic flow as well as creating improved areas for the public with dedicated seating areas, cycle stands, water refill stations and electric car charging points. The project also future proofs the infrastructure along and around the prom, improving facilities for businesses, residents and visitors.
One output of the new promenade design is the reduction in unnecessary street clutter. This will help to provide a more open feel to the promenade. Douglas Borough Council will also install new street lighting throughout with the aim of reducing light pollution as part of our Island’s commitment to UNESCO/Biosphere.
We are working hard to minimise disruption and would like to thank all our visitors for their patience and look forward to welcoming them back to our extraordinary island in the future when it is possible.
