Bus and Rail Travel Updates
Information on current and future travel disruptions.
Circular Road one-way from 4 September 2017
Due to highway resurfacing and traffic light works, Circular Road in Douglas is to be made one-way from Peel Road towards Bucks Road from 4 September until 9 October (or until the works are completed).
During this period buses arriving in Douglas from Peel Road or Westmoreland Road operate as normal via Circular Road unless off-peak highway works are taking place close to the Peel Road/Circular Road junction.
Service 26 & 27 journeys departing Douglas divert from Prospect Hill via Bucks Road and Kensington Road to Westmoreland Road and are therefore unable to serve the stops at Hillside Avenue and at the Henry Bloom Noble School.
The 1720 Service 12A and 1722 Service 5A departures from Lord Street divert from Prospect Hill via Athol Street to Peel Road and are therefore unable to pick up at the
Prospect Hill and Circular Road stops. Alternative stops are at the Town Hall, Athol Street near to the Church Street junction or the Brown Bobby.
Road Closure in Isle of Man Business Park from 4 September 2017
The road in the Isle of Man Business Park between the Foxdale Road and Ballacottier Meadow junctions is to be closed for highway and service connection works from 4 until 29 September.
During this period buses are unable to serve any of the stops in the Isle of Man Business Park.
Service 4/4C buses travelling towards Foxdale serve the new bus stop layby near to Eden park and a temporary stop at the IOM Business Park roundabout.
Service 4/4C buses travelling towards Foxdale serve the existing stop at the Business Park roundabout and the new stop at the B&Q roundabout.
Service 21B journeys are unable to serve the stops on Vicarage Road at Rose Hill Mews and turn via the Stevenson Way/Vicarage Road roundabout.

Service 4 timetable adjustment
With immediate effect the 14:25 schooldays Service 4P departure from Niarbyl operates as a Service 4, departing Peel Town Hall at 1442 to terminate at Foxdale School at 14:57.
This then provides an additional schooldays connection (using the Service 4C due opposite Foxdale School at 1501) between Peel and Castletown.
The school holiday journey from Niarbyl at 14:25 continues to operate as timetabled.
