A JOURNEY many Manx people make from Heysham to the M6 motorway should be much easier in the future.
The UK government today announced that a link road between the port and the motorway had been given the go-ahead.
Heysham, Lancashire, is the main port serving the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company.
Most of the island’s freight and sea passengers use the port to get to and from the island.
Patrick McLoughlin, the UK’s Secretary of State for Transport, has given final sign-off on the £123m road and work is now scheduled to start this summer.
