TT 2014 - Post Office Services
All Post Offices will be open as usual during TT week including Senior Race Day (6th of June) except those located on the race course and Post Offices shall be closed on Bank Holiday Monday 26th of May. The Department of Social Care has agreed that the pensions and allowances due for payment on the 26th of May can be encashed one week early.
From Saturday 31st of May to Friday 6th of June, on race days, deliveries to addresses on the course or where access is only possible via the course, will be significantly affected.
For areas that are inaccessible because of road closures deliveries may take place on the day after the scheduled races. If for any reason races are delayed the Post Office will endeavour to deliver to these addresses prior to the roads closing on the succeeding day. The Post Office will also endeavour to maintain normal collection times where possible however it kindly asks the public to be mindful of the potential for some disruption. High traffic volumes, especially on race days, may cause some delays.
On non-race days there will be a compete delivery of mail but please be aware that there is a possibility of some delay as deliveries will include mail which was not able to be delivered the previous day.
Addresses within the TT course that are affected by the road closures will shortly receive a letter from the Post Office explaining the specific arrangements and offering them the option to collect their mail from their local delivery office or make alternative arrangements.
With TT comes an increase in vehicles volumes and speed throughout the island and therefore all our postal staff will be wearing high visibility jackets whilst they carry out their deliveries during TT week to ensure that motorists can clearly see them on the road.
