Temporary bus stop relocation in Onchan

Due to the continuing works at the old IOM Bank on Main Road in Onchan, the bus stop at the layby beside these works is suspended until further notice.

During this suspension period a temporary alternative stop is available in the layby opposite the filling station beside the roundabout at the Summerhill Road junction.

Buses are unable to wait at this temporary stop.

Road works on Summer Hill – commencing 1 July 2018

Phase 1 of the works involves the road being closed between Queens Promenade and the Blackberry Lane junction.

During this phase Service 2 journeys operate as Service 2A and therefore divert from the Promenades via Port Jack and Royal Avenue to Ballachrink and Windermere Drive - returning via Eskdale Road and Port Jack to the Promenades.

Service 13 journeys divert via Broadway, Victoria Road and Governors Road between Harris Promenade and Manx Arms in each direction.

Phase 2 of the works is between the Blackberry Lane junction and the Main Road roundabout.

Now that the works are between the Blackberry Lane junction and Main Road roundabout all Service 2 & 13 journeys divert via Blackberry Lane and Governors Road between Summer Hill and Manx Arms.
