Manx motorists face Quarter Bridge roadworks delays
Motorists are facing rush-hour delays when roadworks begin at one of the busiest junctions in the Isle of Man.
The road improvement scheme at Quarterbridge is due to get under way on 24 January and last six weeks.
Work will include resurfacing the worn-away mini-roundabouts as well as widening parts of the road for commercial vehicles and buses.
It means part-time traffic signals, narrow lanes and two temporary weekend road closures at the junction.
A project to rebuild the Ballakillowey roundabout, Rushen, gets under way a week earlier, on 17 January.
The Department of Infrastructure warned it was likely to cause delays "particularly during the morning peak" and said motorists should seek alternative routes.
Infrastructure Minister Phil Gawne said: "The improvements that will be made at Ballakillowey and Quarterbridge are vitally important to improve safety for pedestrians and motorists at the two junctions.
"The department would like to apologise for any inconvenience these essential works may cause and thank the travelling public for its continued co-operation."
