Pulrose Bridge

This project to replace Pulrose River Bridge is due to commence in March 2021 with the aim of reducing the risk of flooding, improving the highway and protecting vital infrastructure connections. The bridge carries important electricity, water and telecoms connections which must all be diverted and reconnected, whilst maintaining supplies.

The current bridge was built in 1931 and, due to ongoing maintenance issues, it is neither practical nor economically justifiable to extend its life further.

The new reinforced concrete and steel beam structure will significantly reduce this risk by increasing the flow capacity of the river under the bridge.

The bridge's highway will feature new cycle lanes, linking Peel Road with the Heritage Trail and Nunnery cycle routes, together with the soon to be completed Pulrose/Anagh Coar cycle route all of which supports the Isle of Man Government's Active Travel Strategy.
