The installation of a bus and cycle lane on Glencrutchery Road in Douglas is a temporary measure to help southbound traffic flows, and is among a series of changes in place while the promenade is one-way north-bound between Victoria Road and Summerhill.
Cyclists and bus passengers are being given priority in line with Isle of Man Government commitments to Climate Change and Active Travel, and on creating attractive places for people to live and work.
The new layout is being monitored while motorists become used to the change, and will be subject to review if deemed necessary.
A change requiring motorists to use the dip at the Governor’s Hill/Victoria Road has been reviewed this morning and will be amended overnight.
Other changes have seen four lanes reduced to three at the Main Road-Avondale Road junction in Onchan in order to reduce queueing from the Laxey direction, while traffic signals at multiple locations have been modified to ease the flow of traffic.
