Storm-damaged wall is now good as new

Repairs to the sea wall in Castletown have been completed – and the local authority is delighted with the results.

In January, a breach in the sea wall led to a collapse of a large section of the car park by the old grammar school.

The Department of Infrastructure has been carrying out repairs since.

The authority heard last week that safety railings will be installed and the area can then re-open for car parking, of which there are more spaces than previously.

It is also hoped to create a viewing area by introducing custom-made benches, possibly a viewing telescope and bronze compass plate indicating places of interest, such as Scarlett and Langness that could be installed on top of the wall.
