Just been along the new roundabout at Cooil rd why the hell do they think we need the type of round a bout you get when you come off the motorway onto the duel carrige way. Is it because they are using some dodgy C.A.D. they bought totaly overpriced and not including alternatives for B roads which is all that really exist on the island. All that was needed slight road widening and a white spot of paint on the floor. You know the kind that work just as well if not better than the monstroseties we are being inflicted with. Its following best practise they say, what about QB then what about Bradden Bridge. The most used round a bouts on the island no where near the size.

Well they are expecting about 10,000 car's a day up at Jackson's looking to buy a new car.

I remember this one, They had to move all of the garages into a kind of gasoline ally so you could fill up before entering just so to sure of making it to an exit.

I think it was the first outing for the new C.A.D tool they had purchased . It was never stated how much money was wasted on this with design fee's purchasing of different plots of land.  Heron and Brearley came out well ahead sell up and pay nominal rent for 20/30 years nice little earner

big roundabouts are easier for HGV's and there are quite a few in and out of that estate that end.   should make wednesdays easier too.

I doubt it, the oldies will be sat at each entrance waiting for someone to make a move

 only having to give way to the right should double your chances of getting out, it will also slow down the speedy fuckers who don't know what 30 is

perhaps that's the plan, make the roundabout big enough so every entry just sees a T-junction !

I've just heard Malarkey on the radio. Christ knows what his "radical" approach to re-engineer road safety on the IOM will be but I think we should all be very afraid indeed. Clusterfuck city!
