The main car park at the front of the Sea Terminal in Douglas is to be redesigned and resurfaced in a project due to begin in early September.
The scheme aims to create a safer route for passengers walking between the Sea Terminal and Peveril Square by installing a new footway from the front doors of the building to the pelican crossing.
The new design will feature 38 car park spaces, the same number as the existing car park, plus four electric vehicle charging points. The existing taxi rank and passenger drop-off area will also be accommodated.
Preparatory works will begin in mid-August when the lines in the car park are removed using a machine on hire from off-Island while it is here to support the surface dressing programme currently taking place around the Island.
The car park will remain without lines for around three weeks until the main project gets underway immediately after the Festival of Motorcycling. Normal disc-zone restrictions will apply during this period and motorists are requested to park their vehicles responsibly.
