DOI hope to have Mountain Road reopened later today

Tue, 22 Jan 2013


The Department of Infrastructure says it is working to re-open the Mountain Road as quickly as it can.

The road has been shut since Friday due to heavy snowfall.

Teams are working to try and get it open however it still has significant amounts of snow on it. There's drifts of over one metre and snowfall between 200mm and 300mm in places.

Elsewhere conditions have been described as tricky in and around Foxdale, from Ballacraine through to Creg Willey's and around St Johns.

The Brandywell Road, Sulby Glen Road, Beinn-y-Phott Road, and Injebreck will also all remain closed until at least 5pm today.
