THE first part of the Peel Road refurbishment plan is going to be completed more quickly than first announced.
Pulrose Bridge is due to close on Monday.
That closure was meant to last for nine weeks. But now that has been cut to five weeks.
The Department of Infrastructure said the change followed ‘an engineering review by the construction teams’.
The bridge is to be strengthened using concrete.
To speed up the works, additional concrete formwork equipment is being used so that several concrete pours can be undertaken at the same time instead of one after the other.
More workers will also be redeployed to the bridge work. They’re being taken away from other projects.
Monday’s Isle of Man Examiner will have more on this story.
