  1. Is the second pic from the Peel to Douglas railway line after the 'improvements'?
  2. Why is there a picture of The Stig dancing above the bike?
  3. I just hope the new one can maintain the high levels of cleanliness and speedy service the old KFC had.
  4. As of lunchtime no. They also seem to be finally removing the bus stop by that junction so cars will no longer be routed straight into oncoming traffic. It's all go on the prom.
  5. Broadway seemed fine this morning. No tailbacks and a not at all confusing road layout. Especially as none of the road markings were already wearing away. * *some or all of this post may not be true
  6. They are also replacing some of the bumpy bits of road in Santon with even bumpier bits at the moment. Also I wonder if the prom would be so behind if Auldyn wasnt already massively overstretched doing the primary school up hy StNinians. Seems to be a massive rush on up there to get things finished during half term with the prom slowing to a crawl again at the same time.
  7. So how many days will it be bfore they admit the error and make Broadway one way uphill for the duration of the work.
  8. If anyone wants to see what the red concrete will look like in a couple of years take a spin through the McDonalds drive thru. They have the same stuff and it looks terrible. Probably nothing to worry about though as given the number of cracks I'm sure they will be digging it all up and replacing with something else soon enough
  9. So the kids play area in the Sea Terminal is now closed off apparently to be dismantled and not replaced. Nice one. One of the few non weather affected facilities for preschool kids that is actually available 7 days a week and now closed with no notice at the start of winter.
  10. I dunno sometimes Buster really knows his stuff. For instance last week he was talking about electoral fraud.
  11. And the results are finally in http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=51446&headline=Island+cleared+of+VAT+avoidance+over+corporate+jets&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2019&fbclid=IwAR0mIG3MZ3GCXSwz2J6yRcd-S23zzTXxgkET9A01RPJLRacfc-dFQAzmdpk
  12. This time next year wasnt it. Project was meant to take two years.
  13. Just had a newsletter from the recently rediscovered myprom team. Finally an admission that it wont be finished on time with April 2021 the bew completion date. New phasing plans will be available on Friday too. Exciting times.....
  14. It's true https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/sainsburys-to-replace-waitrose-and-iceland-at-shoprite1/
  15. That walkway parking went well overnight then....
  16. Hour less on the boat, hour more on a coach. Probably not the big deal people will make it out to be.
  17. Did anyone know he had a website before he mentioned the cost of having a website?
  18. Shoprite just objects to other people having good ideas it doesn't have any itself.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. I wonder who had taken the cones away opposite Jaks. Cars were parked there (and ticketed) this morning. Strangely the cones have returned now.
  22. I did read somewhere that all of the streets between the prom and strand street close next week too...
  23. Douglas - Closed for refurbishment.
  24. 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)
