Works to Clear Blocked Culvert at Hibernia

hiberniaWork to clear the blocked culvert at Hibernia Junction on the A2 Coast Road is scheduled to take place between December 12th and 16th this year. It is hoped that this will alleviate the flooding problems that have beset the ‘dip’ just on the Ramsey side of the junction. The Commissioners thank the Department for scheduling these works.

Temporary Speed Restrictions A2 Coast Road at Dhoon

There will be temporary 30 and 50 mph speed limits on the A2 Coast Road in the Dhoon area between Ballasholague Corner and the Dhoon Tram Halt (see image). The restrictions will be indicated by temporary signage and be in force from the 31st of October until the 19th of November. This is to enhance the safety of the DoI’s workers as they undertake ditch cleaning. Please observe the limits during these times.

Please be aware that our staff & contractors may be working on the minor road highways in the coming weeks.

This is because the Commissioners are undertaking surveys of the gridded gully pots across Garff. It has been Lonan this week, particularly the Baldrine Park, Highfield Drive and the Church Close/Ballacollister areas. Any gullies that are blocked will be cleaned in the coming week.
Gullies in Laxey and Maughold will be assessed in the next 10/14 days. Please report any blocked grids to 861241 and we will deal with them.
As it’s Autumn the Commissioners will also be employing the large street sweeping vehicle in Garff; this moves slowly so please drive with care when it is operating on the minor highways across the Sheading.
Please report any large build up of leaves on the highway to the Commissioners.
