Isle of Man road closure for 'significant' works
A major route in the Isle of Man will be closed for several weeks to allow for a "significant" programme of road improvements, the government says.
Resurfacing, drainage work and cat-eye replacement will take place on the A18 Mountain Road from 9 September.
The first phase, between 9 and 13 September will see a complete closure between the Bungalow and Ramsey.
The area between the Creg-ny-Baa and the Bungalow will be closed between 09:30 (BST) and 17:00 each day.
A government spokesman said:"Motorists and race fans may have observed that the surface at Ramsey Hairpin and the Creg-ny-Baa are deteriorating and require attention."
The remaining work will begin on 16 September and is expected to take about three weeks.
This will mean an off-peak Mountain Road closure between 09.30 BST and 16:30, every day except Sundays.
