The plan is to lift the road several inches so there will be no curb. Just flat straight out to run off on beach. Apparently. 

No.  Theres about 25 mm or so to still go on that part of the road which will enable any water to go into the run off already formed in the kerbs . Hence why water is gathered  currently . It should be fine when they finish the surface level. But I'm not 100% sure they have got levels right . Time will tell

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'm not an expert, but surely you can't build gutters without some sort of camber to allow water to drain???

Just speaking the truth.  As hard as that may be to accept.

Having spent more time reading posts while in self isolation , I have to say that TDTB talks a lot of sense and TSOS is very easily confused. A different perspective when looking in from the outside. 😦

By the time they finish the roads (not even God knows when), the newly laid pavements are gonna look so dirty and old, they'll probably have to do them again. But then again, maybe that's the plan, so they can pilfer a few more million pounds. Who knows?

Away from the prom it would be nice to know why the newly resurfaced Curragh Road in St Johns is closing for a fortnight for resurfacing.

Replacing the traffic lights on the 4 junctions, they have allowed plenty of time as most of the civils I believe have been done during the past closure.

It is now part of a 15 years project to revitalise Douglas. Dig deep my friends.

I sympathise with some of his points. There needs to be more pressure to redevelop brownfield sites (and pan-Island too), it's not the full answer but it has its part to play, Lord knows there's enough of them.

They also need to apply pressure to "old money" landlords to bring property up to scratch particularly in appearance where applicable. DBC could do their part here with incentivation via the rates system too.
