  1. Couldnt they just clean up the mine workings and dump it straight at Turkeylands rsther than waiting for it to travel down river to Peel?
  2. I hear somebody has sent a letter and nobody can remember what to do with them so they all just panicked and hit the fire alarm.
  3. Well if they complain about shipping in the Mersey they should probably be pushed in.
  4. I think they are about to continue. They were getting set up this morning to commence work again by the Castle Mona.
  5. Tim Baker was fun on the radio last night. Apparently there are just a few cracks in the concrete and repairing them won't be a big deal. Also the dispute between the designers and contractors about the cause of the cracking is perfectly normal and will be easily sorted. Did he by any chance have a PR job for Saddam Hussein's government during the last Gulf War?
  6. Interesting admission later on that they are overstretched people wise and are looking to get people from the UK to work on the sheltered housing they are doing in Peel so they can shunt the people there onto the prom.
  7. Is that a chewing gum cleaning machine I can see stuffed into the back?
  8. If course 93.72% of statistics are mafe up bollox
  9. Shocking stuff. Not the storm, just the Auldyn truck heading back to the depot. First time I have seen any prom workers this year.
  10. You have to assume there are 'discussions' currently going on about the rails. It makes no sense to continue doing them when they can't even agree about what is causing the concrete to crack.
  11. 4 days in they have now managed to dig a hole just down from Sam Webbs
  12. Amazingly little being done this week judging by a walk along the prom this morning. Bar a handful of people on Loch Prom the place is like a ghost town. I think it is safe to assume that a week or so into 2020 they are already a week or so behind.
  13. Oldest person evert to take a gap year by the sounds of things.
  14. Chester Street car park should be fun tomorrow around 5.30 as everyone leaving gets stuck going up Christian Road.
  15. Quality communications feom the myprom team as usual I see
  16. I was quite impressed that the phasing plans were already out of date the day they published them. Gives you a nice warm feeling inside that all will be done on time and within budget from now on.
  17. Agreed. He even carried in parking there when they had the parking restrictions due to the one way on Shore Road. I'm amazed there hasn't been a head on crash there. It can only be a matter of time....
  18. I see from the newly published October minutes Longworth wants a shitload of brand new bus shelters now rather than reinstating the old ones which are suddenly unfit for purpose. Also it is impressive the way they have managed to make the new phasing plans even harder to understand than the old ones.
  19. Did they have a load of tarmac they needed to get rid of before black eye Friday? They can't get it down quick enough at the moment.
  20. No more criticism please. Time Baker has spoken (possibly for the first time since he was elected) https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/baker-rounds-on-prom-critics/
  21. You would think the person due to receive the email may have wondered where it was too. Smells of bullshit this one.
  22. Busters facebook site has an FoI response about the cracked concrete. Basically anything they could do wrong when putting it down they did.
  23. Probably passed responsibility for payment to the myprom team who as usual got the date wrong.
  24. Eagle eyed commuters today will have noticed that Broadway isn't closing until tomorrow. Not like the myprom team to get a date wrong...
  25. Ha. They have just announced an emergency closure of Broadway for five days from tomorrow to implement a revised traffic management solution. It's almost as if they didn't realise having a stop sign with a pelican crossing right by it may be a bad idea. Can't wait to see what they come up with next.
