Kerb replacement and footpath overlay isn't exactly major works.. and that was the point of the lockdown...nobody in work. Nothing better to moan about today?

Thanks for the feedback Nick & Tim but it’s a shambles & will be chaos

We could have one every 60 yards along the prom...."£1m", "£2m"...."£35m"

These are just the base plinths going in. You can all mock now, but when you see Howard and David's hands in place with 100 foot vaccination needles crossing the prom, that's when you'll be impressed.

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

LOL. You'll have to excuse him. Since Guernsey caught the Rona, he's been having difficulties.:D

What would be your proposal? there would be a lot more chaos if it was carried out under traffic lights, with cars backing up all over the place. i'll say a prayer for you for that extra 5 minutes onto your travel time for the next few weeks though🤞

Should have done it during lockdown obviously!! Won’t bother me much as I can work hours I want in office 😀

It wont cost banker more than 3. He'll take the gloves off and make it up elsewhere.

Alexander Drive needs kerb replacement and footpath overlay??? Are there that many pedestrians walking up-down there that it requires such work? Really?

They've been doing it for ages bit by bit. Does it need it? No idea.  Is that usually part of the reason for doing something? I've no idea about that either.

Monday is going to be fun.  Good day to start chaps.

Going to be chaos between 8-9.30 minimum, diversion signs already in place ready. Not sure what QB Road residents will do, presumably have to go around the whole diversion to get home

Don't know about chaos, I don't use the road but I would think if you do there are plenty of other ways to get to the QB area without it turning into a chaotic situation if you use your head a bit while driving?

I really don't understand why people get so worked up by roadworks, ok no one likes them but they are necessary to maintain the road network or fix/ put in new cables or pipes.

I think you'll find that it is the slapdash way the DoI go about roadworks that winds people up...

This + 1 , also length of time taken and quality of work . Everyone groans when they announce a scheme ,timescale and costings  as we all know its so not happening .

You see it in Castletown where the road was relaid a few years ago. Now it's breaking up like an onion skin.
