The North Quay Footbridge would provide an additional crossing point between North Quay and South Quay. It has been proposed as aspiration within the newly published 15-year road map of possible projects for the capital of the Isle of Man, which is in the Irish Sea between England and Northern Ireland.
Cuurrently, the quay area has the Millennium Bridge at one end and Douglas Stone Bridge at the other. However, the distance between them is over 500m and discourages those opting to walk. To encourage more people to walk or cycle, a centrally placed footbridge between the quays would be beneficial and in keeping with the government’s ‘active travel’ strategy, says the report.
