Planning application sought to improve rail safety

The Department of Infrastructure says it's planning to improve road and rail safety in Laxey.

The department's applied for planning permission to lower a boundary wall so drivers can see trams more easily.

If it's given the go-ahead, the work would take place at the Manx Electric Railway site on New Road.

In its application, the DOI says the smaller wall would improve visibility of oncoming trams.
