  • Sulby Glen Road Re-Opens

    The Sulby Glen Road is re-opening ahead of schedule following the completion of a major scheme to rebuild the retaining wall, stabilise the soil slope and resurface the carriageway.

    Work on the section of the A14 near to Tholt-y-Will started on February 17 and was expected to take 12 weeks. However, the road will re-open from 4.30pm today (Thursday), after the repairs were finished earlier than anticipated.

    The closure of the road was necessary in order to replace the existing Manx stone retaining wall and protect the carriageway, which was at risk of collapse because of the instability of the tree-lined slope.
