Welcome to the MyProm newsletter

Construction on the Douglas Promenade Refurbishment Scheme is continuing but we are mindful of the new Covid-19 measures being introduced during the last week so will continually review the working position.

Don't forget for all the latest updates circulated by the Isle of Man Government through their key link 

This site contains all the latest information regarding the new measures that were introduced this week along with relevant healthcare advice. Please use this site rather than unreliable sources. It is important you have accurate facts - this site is continually being updated. It will also include the swathe of business and support measures the Treasury Minister, Alf Cannan announced this week. Please CLICK HERE for details. 

The red concrete has now been laid, this enables work on the landslide to continue. From Monday 11th May excavation of the footpath will begin, service ducts will be installed followed by a tarmac finish. This will leave the surface usable for the public and ready for the granite paving to be laid at a later date.
Future Traffic Management

Monday 11th May, Additional traffic lights will be in operation from Sea Terminal roundabout to Victoria Street. The traffic management will change again after a couple of days once certain aspects of the work are completed. However the traffic light system will remain.

Traffic lights will also be installed outside the Esplanad, just north of Broadway.

Please remember we still operate a 20 mph limit along the entire length of the promenade. Even more relevant as we have an increased workforce and more people using the area for exercise etc.

Our intention is to move as quickly as possible with road construction, however your assistance is required, please avoid driving along the promenade unless your journey is essential or visiting any of the local businesses. 

Loch Promenade 
A newsletter on the Douglas Promenade Refurbishment Scheme was issued to subscribers last night containing incorrect information regarding the horse tram track ending at the War Memorial.

The project has now resumed under a revised schedule taking into account lighter traffic and fewer people using the area.

The intention is for the horse tram track to reach Broadway at least by the end of March 2021.

The project will then stop, allowing hoteliers and other stakeholders in the tourism sector badly affected by the coronavirus pandemic the opportunity to resume activity free of any disruption caused by the construction scheme.

Work required to install the horse tram track further south is planned to be completed in due course.

As previously mentioned the construction works will affect some parallel parking in the Bottleneck car park for a few weeks - this has already come into effect

Due to the measures introduced by Isle of Man Government due to the Covid-19 pandemic visiting coaches will not be on the Island for the moment. 
The new Stand F is now being installed and will be in operation from Monday 11th May. This will see the removal of the shelter outside the Claremont Hotel.
Harris Promenade 
Pictured above are the works on Harris Promenade - The water and gas main trenches are now covered and preparation is now underway for the start of the Cultural Area, outside the Sefton Hotel

Please also note due to the increased number of pedestrians and cyclists along the walkway the decision was taken to remove walkway parking, this will be reviewed once businesses start to reopen and social distancing measures are reduced.

Please be reminded we have a 10mph speed limit on the walkway, this applies to all forms of transport including cyclists.  
Central Promenade 
Rail corridor installation is progressing in this area with steel fixing and laying coloured concrete (this work is weather permitting).. 

During this work it has been very difficult to maintain a crossing point to Marathon Terrace. we have currently made access across from the Queens Public House, and once work progresses we will create an additional crossing point closer to the Marathon Terrace shops and businesses. 
Queen's Promenade 

Seaside works include drainage, kerb bases and highway and footpath construction. Pictured above is the crossing point.

Mona Drive work to install the new water main is now completed, vehicle access from the promenade has returned to normal.
The Department for Enterprise's Grant and Loan Schemes continue to support Promenade Businesses along with the above measures 

Don't forget these support schemes are still available, in addition to the above Treasury measures. Visit to find out more.

Check out the criteria before completing the enquiry form, if you have any queries or require help the Department is more than happy to assist. 

This regular update provides information that is correct at the time that it is sent. However, as with all large projects, sometimes we come across the unexpected!
