Revamp of Douglas Promenade to start today

Mon, 05 Aug 2013

An expensive project to redevelop Douglas Promenade starts today.

The first phase of a multi-million pound scheme to make the area the ‘gateway to the capital’ is starting between Peveril Square and Loch Promenade.

Carriageways will be restructured, junctions and crossings improved and pedestrian areas will be updated.

Minister David Cretney believes the work is also a welcome boost to the construction industry:
