Change to bus stop location in Lord Street from Monday 2 September

Due to the Douglas regeneration works, with effect from Monday 2 September 2019 buses are unable to use Shelter A at Lord Street until March 2020.

The alternative boarding location for Services 4, 4C, 10, 21, 21A, 21B, 21H & 29 is on North Quay beside the car park.

One-way on Shore Road, Rushen – from 1300 on Friday 13 September 2019

Due to highway resurfacing works, Shore Road in Rushen is to be one-way only between Fisher’s Hill and the Shore Hotel from 1300 on Friday 13 September until 28 September 2019, or until the works are completed.

During these works all Service 1A, 2, 2A & 12A  buses scheduled to travel via Shore Road between Port Erin or Port St. Mary and Castletown divert from the Four Roads roundabout via Colby and  Ballabeg.

These re-routed buses do not serve the stops on the diversionary route between the Ballakillowey roundabout and Ballabeg Railway Station (inclusive).

For this event the Sloc Road between the Round Table crossroads and Ballakillowey Estate is closed from 1300 to 1630.

Service 8R:  The 1530 departure from Port Erin diverts from the Ballakillowey roundabout via Colby, Ballabeg, Cross Four Ways and Ballamodha to Higher Foxdale - therefore not serving the Sloc or Round Table.
