Mountain Road closes due to weather conditions

by IOM Constabulary

Mountain Road closes due to weather conditions - picture Due to the weather conditions prevalent on the Island at present, the Mountain Road (A16) has been closed to the public from its junctions between the Creg Ny Baa back road and the Hairpin in Ramsey. The road closure will remain in effect until further notice.
 
A combination of high winds, sleet and heavy rain is making driving conditions on the mountain in particular, very treacherous.

Motorists are asked to drive with particular care wherever they may be on the Island, as we are receiving reports of trees being blown down and standing water on many road surfaces. Please take your time when using the roads this afternoon, and drive to the current conditions.
 
The police would like to thank the public for their understanding and patience.
