Isle of Man motorists have been warned of months of traffic disruption due to roadworks on a major route.

Changes are due to take place on the New Castletown Road and the approach to Quarterbridge roundabout.

The initial work involves laying a new sewer connection and the latter work is part of a road maintenance scheme.

An infrastructure spokesman said commuters between Douglas and Castletown can expect delays for a period of about 10 weeks.

Between 11 and 18 June diversions will be in place via Kewaigue and South Quay or along Saddle Road and Vicarage Road.

From 17 June, there will be a one-way system in place which will allow traffic to travel south, out of Douglas.

Motorists travelling into Douglas from the south are advised to use either Cooil Road or Kewaigue and South Quay.
