CHANGES TO postal services during TT fortnight have been announced.
With the substantial increase in traffic volume on the island’s roads during the TT races, it inevitably leads to some disruption.
On days where roads are closed there will be a significant effect on deliveries to addresses on the course or where access is only available via the course. Deliveries will be made where they are able to but some addresses may not be accessible and will have their mail delivered to them the next available day. Normal delivery times may vary.
Collections may be affected especially in rural areas and final collection times in the town areas may also vary. On non-race days there will be a complete delivery of mail but please note there may be some delays as deliveries will include mail from the previous day for premises affected by the closure of the TT course. During the TT period, customers and businesses that are located on the course or are affected by road closures, can for their own convenience collect their mail from their local sorting office or have their mail delivered to another address.
All post offices will be open as usual during TT week, except Senior Race Day on Friday June 8. People can collection their pensions earlier, if they are due during TT. The details are as follows; due on Monday June 4 it can be collected Tuesday, May 29, Tuesday, June 5, can be collected Tuesday, May 29, Wednesday, June 6, can be collected on Wednesday, May 30, Thursday, June 7, can be collected on Thursday May 31 and Friday June 8 can be collected on June 1.
