Due to open March 23rd is Islands latest example of chronic incompetence and massive waste of public funds If this were a competition then Laxey Station would not even be in the top ten of embarrasing public sector fuck-ups, but it shows how even on a limited budget we can still produce ill conceived projects that will make us a laughing stock What was a rather tatty but charming Victorian tram station has now been infected with the disease of granite paving which is covering our towns like a rash The culprits in this tragic venture were Ian Longworth (Bendy Buses) head of bus & rail and David Millar (Dalrymple Assc. no relation to ex chief minister) Quite how they battered Laxey Regeneration Committee into submission over this is unclear, but apparently several concessions were made to lessen the Canary Wharf style glass & stainless steel features The resulting mess has triggered a backlash from the public, so expect to hear denials and blame shifting from those involved
