Nothing easy in KM...residents and wealthy landowners to deal with. How many other by pass proposals have there been and what grounds have they failed on?

Mainly on the grounds it simply isn't needed.

Yep, obviously they'd need a replacement parking bit, but the cheapest and most effective option is to make it a non parking road, rather than building a bypass. They won't do it though!

 

Where do you suggest the home owners park then? It's fine saying it should be no parking to make things easy for you but the people who live in the village of KM have to park somewhere and there isn't really anywhere else for them to park. Should they stop owning cars just to make life more convenient for you too?

Yes

 

As I said in an earlier post, I don't see what the problem is, in fact there isn't one.

I have been a driver for over 40 years and have driven for a living (?) for about 30 odd of these.

I cannot remember ever being in a hold up or in fact even any sort of queue, apart from TT week and even then it wasn't that bad.

The fact that many vehicles have to slow down or stop to give way to oncoming traffic makes it a damn sight safer for the villagers, especially the kids.

I think some people need to get over themselves.

Yes

But that doesn't really make any sense. Some of the houses in that village have been there for 100 years or more and most don't have any off street parking. The only people moaning are probably Dandara Estate dwellers who seem to want the rest of the Island to be an urban clearway just so they can get from their stupid ugly estates that nobody wanted built in the first place to their stupid low paid jobs in the quickest possible time.

 

There isn't really an issue in KM other than loads of impatient twats who forget that the road and the houses have been there for 100 years or more.
