Temporary traffic lights that were to be installed in Ballasalla on the main Douglas to Castletown Road this week have been postponed until further notice.

The temporary lights were supposed be in place from Tuesday, April 19, at the new roundabout by the main entrance to the Reayrt Mie housing development to allow for road surfacing, line painting and road sign installation works to be carried out.

When they are installed, the traffic signals will initially be three-way before reverting to two-way for the remainder of the works.

Dandara housing director Ciaran Downey said: ‘We would like to thank the public in advance for their patience and apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused.

‘These essential works are being carried out in conjunction with the Department of Infrastructure, with traffic management systems via Watling Street Works, and will be completed as quickly as possible.’
