The Sea Terminal Roundabout is one of three roundabouts close to the ferry terminal in central Douglas. To the north is Peveril Square, and to the west an un-named roundabout. None of the roundabouts are particularly well signed, to the point that visitors arriving on the island for the first time could very easily make a wrong turn and end up heading in completely the wrong direction. All three will be discussed below.

Peveril Square

The Peveril Square Roundabout

Peveril Square is the junction between the A8 and A11 at the north west corner of the Sea Terminal building. The A11 approaches along Loch Promenade, while the short dualled section of the A8 heads south across the front of the terminal. The other three arms of the junction are all car park accesses, the first leading to the shore car park along the promenade, the second into the main terminal car park, and the third into the drop off / pick up parking in front of the terminal.

Sea Terminal Roundabout

The Sea Terminal Roundabout

The Sea Terminal Roundabout on the A8 sits at the south west corner of the Sea Terminal building. It is a four arm roundabout with the A8 forming the north and western arms as it navigates its way around the port area. To the east is the exit from the short stay car park in front of the terminal, and to the south is the entrance and exit for the ferries. The three main arms all have two approach and departure lanes, those leading into the port separate cars and commercial vehicles.

Un-named Roundabout

The third roundabout lies a short distance further west along the A8 and marks the start of the A1. Here the A8 turns south again, along another very short section of dual carriageway to reach the Double Corner Roundabout and the Douglas Harbour Lifting Bridge across the river, while the A1 continues west along Lord Street on the start of its journey across the island. All three arms again (just about) have two approach and departure lanes.
