I think we probably need to start thinking about this as art. 

Is carnage another word for art then as thats what its going to be . Throw a horsetram or two into the mix , traffic from all directions with no clear giveway lines , a few cyclists and multiple pedestrians and its going to be a real tourist attraction for the wrong reasons .

All joking aside, what is the legal situation with this thing? Could some fault fall on the DOI or IOMG if there is an accident?

DOI I'd say . My money is it wont open on Monday . Theres a shitstorm on facebook about it .

To be fair it has been in the plans and public that this cock up was coming for at least 2 years.

I expected it to at least be finished properly though.

They have not took onboard the St Johns tragedy,.

It Is a disgrace.

I think they have removed the markings from that  crossing,  or perhaps it wasn't a crossing  or perhaps it was.

Its quite different to the plans though. And check the pics out again as doesnt look much room for traffic coming from north to south down the prom. Certainly looks very tight for a bus or truck etc And yes the finish is completly unacceptable .

But where is the traffic to go? Between the lines, or following them?  

The crossing outside of  Admiral House - is that a pedestrian crossing or not?

Were these designed approved by a traffic management consultant or some GCSE installation art student?  At least if it was Banksy there would be some acerbic wit in there. 

Does anyone in DOI actually understand that if it is not clear how to use a road, the likely consequences are serious, if not grave? 

This is not designing a patio FFS.
