  1. 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. 

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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..... 

  5. 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)

    Steady on, think of his yuman rights.

    If we treat them them harshly instead of being molly coddled, and wiping their arses, there will come a day, when someone will go running to a sympathetic Athol Street lawyer who will take legal action, using legal aid money. 

    Goldie probably insists on his arse being wiped with a Ritz Cracker

  7. 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.
