The DoI are proposing two periods of closure of the A18 Mountain Road in April 2023 for enhancements to the TT Course.

The proposed parking restrictions will be between 3rd – 8th April and 11th – 28th April (with a contingency to go to 5th May in case of bad weather, etc).

The restrictions will result in heavier traffic on the full A2 from Ballure down to past the Liverpool Arms in Garff. This will affect our residential areas such as at Glen Mona and through Laxey Village to Baldrine. New Road will have parking restrictions at ‘rush-hour’ times.

The Department are requesting views on these matters at the moment.

The Commissioners have opposed parking restrictions on New Road in the past. If the proposals do go ahead, they plan to deploy their own speed indictor in Glen Mona, Baldrine, request enforcement by the Roads Policing Unit, and monitor and report driver behaviour as much as resources allow.
