Isle of Man Post Office announced details of changes to its delivery and collection services for residential and commercial customers over TT week.
From tomorrow (Saturday) to Friday, June 10, on race days, deliveries to addresses on the course or where access is only possible via the course, will be significantly affected.
For areas that are inaccessible because of road closures, deliveries may take place on the day after the scheduled races.
If for any reason races are delayed the Post Office will attempt to deliver to these addresses prior to the roads closing on the succeeding day.
The Post Office will also endeavour to maintain normal collection times where possible however it is asking the public to be mindful of the potential for some disruption.
High traffic volumes, especially on race days, may cause some delays. On non-race days there will be a complete delivery of mail but there is a possibility of some delay as deliveries will include mail which was not able to be delivered the previous day.
Addresses within the TT course that are affected by the road closures were recently issued a letter from the Post Office explaining the specific arrangements and offering them the option to collect their mail from their local delivery office or make alternative arrangements.
For anyone not yet in receipt of this contact customer services on 664664.
With TT comes an increase in vehicle volumes and speed throughout the island and therefore, all postal staff will wear high visibility jackets and their vehicles will be equipped with rotating amber lights whilst carrying deliveries during TT week to ensure that motorists can clearly see them on the road. All post offices will be open as usual during TT week however, on Senior Race Day the following post offices will be closed:
l Crosby Terrace
l Governors Hill
l Kirk Michael
l Kirk Onchan
l Port Erin
l Port St Mary
l St Johns
l Windsor Road
l Union Mills
All other post offices will be open as normal with the exception of Kirk Andreas which will be open from 9am - 12.30pm.
