  1. “Because you don’t understand it” ”Social media doesn’t understand it” 🙈🤣
  2. Skelly - 20 votes Watterson - 12 votes
  3. Following the usual pattern of events, Tim Baker gives his reassurances that work will be completed by a given date about a week before the next delay is announced 🙉🤡 https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/doi-minister-pledges-prom-will-be-finished-by-august/ So the discussion about being finished by 26th August instead of 28th August to be clear for the bank holiday weekend was academic after all 🤷‍♂️
  4. Stabits were made off the Old Castletown Road near Meary Veg, but could well have been the route used to transport the stone used from Stoney Mountain quarry
  5. So who had “before the end of June” in the sweep for digging up again?!!
  6. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, it’s only opening to exit the prom on Monday……we’ve still got to wait another month until it’s fully opened!!
  7. Problem solved, there’ll be less traffic from the north using Ballanard Road/Tromode Road diversions because the mountain road will be shut for six weeks too!! https://www.three.fm/news/isle-of-man-news/six-week-closure-for-mountain-road/?fbclid=IwAR1FFGGUiZ2aqNsh_qIqwoZp8XjNu6h4fJn8EnHhq7_yc-g6WULnZvBltiY
  8. Agree there are plenty of busy roads/routes that require attention more than this & not just in Douglas. But for example, DOI have mentioned elsewhere that they won’t touch Woodbourne Road until the Prom has been completed as it’s a key alternative route; obviously don’t view this road in the same way despite the additional traffic from Onchan and the north heading into town instead of along the Prom.
  9. Today’s missive from MyProm includes a photo that suggests the marker has been turned 180 degrees!
  10. It is a bit misleading, according to this you can register up to 2nd September to vote in general election. https://www.gov.im/categories/home-and-neighbourhood/elections-and-voting/
  11. Just in time to make sure the area looked a complete mess & access to the area was as difficult as possible about 6 weeks before the 100th anniversary of Armisitice Day. All a bit unnecessary at that particular time as the area was still sat empty and used as motorcycle parking June 2019.
  12. Somebody probably forgot that traffic is currently driving on the walkway along Loch Prom and not on the road!!
  13. So lockdown means another 3 weeks (minimum) lost on the project. Come on, you didn’t really think 6 months was really going to be achievable did you? 😆 https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/douglas-promenade-will-be-finished-in-six-months-vow/
  14. As if we couldn’t see this was on the cards, a big loss for businesses and communities in the west & south. “Isle of Man Bank today announced the reduction of its branch network from January 7 2021 as it makes further investments in digital banking. The move will see the bank’s Peel and Castletown branches close.” http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=57731&headline=Isle of Man Bank closing two more branches&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2020
