  1. How to 'punctuate correctly' would be better in context
  2. What the actual fuck at the end of Victoria Street! No right turn except to cross two lanes of traffic. And putting left and right hand lanes together in the left hand lane.
  3. Just taking the old prison and park road sites. There are a number of govt departments with sensible designs for use medical/ afforable/ sheltered. None of whom have the budget as the business cases get turned down due to lack of funds. So now we have politicians who haven't bothered to ask making decisions like this. Odd. to private sites like Summerland and the Bus station developers drop out as there's no proven demand. interesting Bill has chosen to stand in front of a site which has a full design (Sefton Group) however why would they commit funds to it when govt are destroying tourism. This amounts to giving prime development land to Dandara for free. Little more than that.
  4. It will be more shocking if ever they are able to announce they are on programme. It’s becoming farcical now. news of never intending to work on pavements countered nicely by artist impressions of new pavements
  5. Unable to work is the majority. Also folk drop off because they have to and then register again as soon as possible. Fudging the figures like.
  6. I think the Contractors have. They just need instruction and plans to function. And they have neither. That was clear from day one when two subbies randomly started breaking out concrete Islands only to go to the north end of the prom and work there.
  7. Numbnuts is correct. The Minister instructed work to start before the design work was finished for the Broadway and Sefton areas and before anything other than speculative discussion with other service providers. I was told the prom will take 3.5 years at least. However it 'has' to be finished before the election. Which became 'substantially' finished which became phase 1.
  8. Absolute dick of a question though. Right up there with the one about stamps
  9. Ps that roundabout as featured looks like the Sefton end to me.
  10. Revisiting the artist impressions it becomes clear the intention is for there to be no kerbside, with the pavement and road being essentially the same level. This is why the tramlines appear so high at present. There is also a slight fall in the landside pavement which will be eradicated. Lovely in theory. Not so sure during a winter storm when surely waves will wash untroubled across the road, hit hotel etc walls and wash back? Or am I being daft?
  11. Ex DFE marketing consultants employed by DFE presumably
  12. I don't think it's been designed yet. Same for the Sefton bit.
  13. He's lining himself up on the green ticket. Nowt more obvious
  14. AB confirmed the taxpayer (MUA) is to pay the taxpayer (DOI) all delay costs But wait the taxpayer (DOI and MUA) will also pay acceleration costs. So joe public is fooled into thinking everything is marvellous
