Peel Road roadworks chaos due to start 11th March
4th March, 2013
With up to 80 weeks of disruption forecast for motorists and businesses, no one is looking forward to the commencment of work on the reconstruction of Peel Road on Monday, March 11th when the £4.3 million scheme starts
Tynwald recently gave approval to the scheme when members approved funding of £4,605,000. This sum includes design fees the £400,000 previously approved by the court to fund the design of the project.
It will be one of the biggest roadworks projects seen in recent years, covering a two thirds of a mile stretch of the cracked and subsiding Peel Road from Quarter Bridge roundabout to the Brown Bobby junction with Circular Road.
Access will be maintained for businesses on Peel Road while the scheme is carried out.
