Horse trams would stop if road works get go-ahead

The Department of Infrastructure will ask Tynwald for over £1 million to start this work - it's hoped that the project will then get further approval so the work can be continued for the full length of the promenade.

Project manager Jim Davidson says Douglas Council has been consulted and this would result in the service being stopped:
