Isle of Man's 'tatty' Douglas Prom set for regeneration

A projected £17.1m scheme to regenerate Douglas's "tired and tatty" promenade could start next month, if Tynwald approves the move.

Phase one, costing £1.6m, would see the development of the road between the Sea Terminal and Victoria Street.

Director of Highways Richard Pearson said: "The last serious investment in the promenade was seen 80 years ago and it is looking very tired and tatty.

"It is the main gateway to the island through which most visitors arrive."
