Clear and Efficient Roads

The Commissioners strive to keep the Parish highways clear and in 2015 the Department of Infrastructure delegated several services to local authorities, exercising powers conferred on it by section 2(1) of the Highways Act 1996, this delegation included the following services:

  • Street sweeping
  • Gully emptying
  • Removal of weeds

Since the delegation of services Braddan Commissioners provide the following services:

  • Scheduled sweeps of the public Highway and litter removal on adjacent verges, amenity planted areas and open grass areas.
  • Litter Bin Emptying.
  • Cleansing of Gullies (surface cleaning and pot emptying).
  • Investigation and removal of fly tipped Materials from Braddan Commissioners owned land and the Highway.
  • Removal of Graffiti and Flyposting in public places.

Please note that Highways Services are responsible for the above listed services on Peel Road and Castletown Road where they pass through the Braddan Parish. They are also responsible for all emergency road clearances (un-scheduled sweeps), maintenance of trees that encroach on a highway, flooding, etc.
