The Department of Infrastructure says drivers will 'get used' to two roundels being installed as part of the Douglas Prom Refurbishment Scheme.

The roundels have been built on Broadway and Church Road Marina.

The design has divided people living and working in the area with one motorist describing it 'as having an hallucination'.

DOI says roundels are designed not to have a traditional central island or a white domed marking due to the nature of their design. They also act as a form of traffic calming, with both roundels sited within the 20mph speed limit for Douglas Promenade.

Infrastructure Minister, Tim Baker MHK commented: ‘roundels are part of modern highway design, having been used in the UK for a number of years. I feel, once the overall area is complete, motorists will soon get used to them.’
