Horse tram stables and depot question in Tynwald

The operation of the Douglas Bay horse trams over the next two years will be discussed when Tynwald sits next week.

Garff MHK Daphne Caine wants to know what the Department of Infrastructure's plans are for stables and a tram depot over the next two years.

Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer recently confirmed that his Department will continue to operate the trams after taking over the service from Douglas Council this year.

However, there are plans to shorten the length of the tramlines as part of the reconstruction of Douglas promenade, which will also go before Tynwald this month.
