  1. Looks as though they are getting ready to put down some more of the red concrete this time with steel reinforcement built into it.
  2. Surely it is a good thing the trams have been running. Had they cancelled them we wouldnt have discovered the surface was unsuitable until the job was complete. Now they are only going to have to dig up and redo a short portion of the track. Longworth has saved us a fortune!
  3. They were still bolting down the rails and putting concrete between then on Friday so I dont think the base is the issue but instead the wrong type of finish.
  4. I see our Rob is on the case and asking a couple of questions in Tynwald next week. Heres hoping he asks a follow up about why the red concrete is already starting to crack.
  5. Just the concrete as far as I could see.
  6. Cones are out and cars getting ticketed between the Castle Mona and Spectrum now so I suspect the next stage of digging up is imminent too.
  7. Blimey. There are a fair few cracks in the new red bit. Time for our Rob to table a question in the house I reckon.
  8. It was. I suspect for some the name was forever linked with the piss take prices that the previous owners were happy to charge prior to the arrival of Currys though.
  9. Prom is coned off all the way to Jaks now. Let the proper disruption commence....
  10. I suspect that they are not in too much of a rush to extend the tram tracks given what a pain in the arse they are so are prioritising work in other areas.
  11. Surely it willbe happening fairly soon otherwise it wouldnt have made sense to clear out the tenants. Carshop have moved and the butty shop closed. Is Fentons still open there?
  12. Dunno if the are closing or just moving (they use the shop on the other side of the street a lot for sales) but their current shop is up to let.
  13. ATS closed now according to facebook. Also both the Game and Newsons premises in Stand Street up to let on Deanwood. It's boom time for sure...
  14. I bet they are mystified as to why hardly anyone parks there in a Sunday since they started charging. Probably something to do with M&S not stocking enough sandwiches or something.
  15. Been awfully quiet on this in the last few months hasnt it?
  16. More bollocks from the big man https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/douglas-prom-temporary-roads-at-tt-had-no-extra-cost/
  17. The second crew assigned to fix the mess the first crew made of the job had probably gone for a spot of lunch.

  19. Sign fitter, ladder holder, supervisor, health and safety inspector, trainee health and safety inspector. Sounds about right to me
  20. Here we go. Apparently the road at the airport needs redesigning. We can't be expecting taxi drivers to use their mirrors http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=48988&headline=Taxi boss criticises layout of airport access roads following bus collision&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2019
  21. Seems like a decent arrangement to me. All the benefits of living in Onchan without having Onchan's MHKs.
  22. Sounds like for SJR the fun has stopped...
  23. And reported in the Independent online..
  24. Whats the schedule for today? Are tyey going to close the roads all day before admitting the fog on the mountain isnt gonna lift or will they leave them open for now.
  25. Horse trams to run just 550 yards after 11 month delay to works due to the time taken digging up all the temporary tarmac they put down for the 2019 TT
