  1. It's true https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/sainsburys-to-replace-waitrose-and-iceland-at-shoprite1/
  2. That walkway parking went well overnight then....
  3. Hour less on the boat, hour more on a coach. Probably not the big deal people will make it out to be.
  4. Did anyone know he had a website before he mentioned the cost of having a website?
  5. Shoprite just objects to other people having good ideas it doesn't have any itself.
  6. Is this nine weeks behind thing before or after they have to dig up and replace all the red concrete they have laid so far.
  7. Hopefully all this mess will highlight the need for dpuble yellows on the blind corner between The Level and Ballakilpheric where some arse insists on parking all the time.
  8. I wonder who had taken the cones away opposite Jaks. Cars were parked there (and ticketed) this morning. Strangely the cones have returned now.
  9. I did read somewhere that all of the streets between the prom and strand street close next week too...
  10. Douglas - Closed for refurbishment.
  11. Just been having a nose on the government planning site. The final planning approval was issued on 9th July so looks as though thing are still moving along (it mentions a number of things that have to be provided before work starts)
  12. Goldie probably insists on his arse being wiped with a Ritz Cracker
  13. Just the one bucket for Goldie then.
  14. Nah that one probably doesn't eat his own shit.
  15. He's not wrong. In the current climate it's gonna be a tough ask getting a decent trade in price for that v8 Jag of his.
  16. I see they have now drilled out a couple of samples in the cracking red concrete presumably to find out what is going wrong. Now I'm no big city structural engineer but you would think this is something they should have done before laying a shitload more of the stuff.

    It would have been quicker reopening the aquadrome.
  18. Oh dear https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=368940987127810&id=195930051095572&anchor_composer=false Did somebody say clusterfuck?
  19. Well the pace has certainly picked up on the tram lines now. They are flying along. I note they have left a bit in the middle though. It's almost as though they don't want the horse trams going any further this summer.
  20. They originally wanted a single trach with passing places all the way along but it was rejected in planning after a bunch of cyclists objected.
  21. Is this Warren James? There was a sign in the window saying is was closing due to the lease ending.
  22. Given the complete lack of activity at Lord Street other than an increase in parking fees they probably won't need to overturn the award of the contract.
  23. Looks as though they are getting ready to put down some more of the red concrete this time with steel reinforcement built into it.
  24. 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!
