Tynwald Votes to retain Full-Length Tramway

posted 18 Jan 2017, 01:51 by Friends of DBHT
After agreement could not be reached in its December sitting, Tynwald voted again yesterday (17 January) to retain the Douglas Bay Horse Tramway along the whole length of Douglas Promenade, with double track between Summerhill and Broadway, and single track along Loch Promenade.  In a combined vote, 17 members voted for the amendment proposed by East Douglas MHK Mr Chris Robertshaw,  while 14 opposed it.

The Department of Infrastructure will now proceed to draw up revised regeneration plans for the Douglas Promenades, including the tramway, and return to Tynwald to seek overall budget approval.
