Busy route closed for roadworks

Motorists are being warned to expect delays and queues after the closure of a busy route into Douglas from the north of the Isle of Man.

The Governor's Bridge roundabout has been shut to allow the completion of a 1.25m road improvement scheme.

Approach roads closed include the A18 Bemahague Road, the A2 Governor's Road and Victoria Road.

The Department of Transport said warning signs had been erected to advise of alternative routes.

The department had considered a partial road closure at the junction but decided it would not be practical.
