I've explained this before Derek. From a friend working for a firm who is responsible for lots of services  , not Auldyn etc , while they had a concept plan from day one ie what the finished job would

It's not Harmer's direct fault. Nor any of those we elect. APART from not having the departmental and relevant experience and balls to stand up to and question the reams of bullshitters and chanc

But the problem isn't the horse trams.  It's the corporate culture of the Manx civil service.  Rather than accept the reality of what their main job is, which is maintain existing structures in the mo

I would have thought they would have to have given the money back by now.  The original excuse was that there was no legal obligation, because they were still prepared to provide the service (ie the accommodation) even though TT had been cancelled.  But then lockdown came and the visitors would not have been able to get here anyway, so they couldn't provide the service.  The Hotel also got quite a lot of government money as well for putting people up.  I suspect the cancelled guests have been quietly paid back.

No sign of any urgency (barely any work at all) over the last four days seeing on the 8th September Broadway and Summerhill are supposed to be open and two way traffic resumed on Central Prom.

To add to the probable congestion King Edward Road is shutting on the 9th just as the schools go back

Going to be a embarrassing press release in the next few days !! Cant see how Broadway will be open or Summerhill . Also how is the two way going to work as again doesnt look as if they have a hope in hell of the road is close to taking two lanes .

Douglas has had it. Destroyed by the DOI. Was up in Castletown Saturday and it was as it should be for a bank holiday weekend. Live bands on, table football tables outside in the Square, children’s play area rammed with mums and dads buying coffees and food while watch to their kids. All pubs busy and cafes crammed. Go to Douglas today and a load of shops hadn't even bothered opening. Nothing on. Nowhere to park even if there was. It’s so sad. Council sat on its big fat lazy ass watching the town fall apart while the rest of the island is trying to keep their towns afloat and give traders a chance to survive.

Douglas’s loss is the outlying towns gain. I have been to many of the events around the island, but never once felt the need to set foot in Douglas. As you rightly say the promenade works are destroying the capital this year, but hopefully it may have opened people’s eyes to what is available elsewhere.

Don’t think the prom is intended to be two way yet, is it ?

2 winters-worth as well. And all the while the've got Douglas Prom ongoing together with all their other projects. I bet the Peel quayside businesses that have been doing so well of late are dreading the thought of this.

Yes think so when Broadway and Summerhill opens on 8th !!!!! That was the intial press release and plan . DOI clearly didn't read the script .  Also Finch Road was to revert back but thats already been ditched to a few weeks time I believe .
