Someone needs to stick a live stream camera up on Monday morning. it’s going to absolute carnage, there must be a reason they installed traffic lights rather than a roundabout in the first instance, god help visitors come TT/MGP, it will be every man for themselves like QB.

There used to be a policeman on point duty there.

Why isn’t it level? Or is that just the paint? Or a they waiting to see where the rain pools first? Aerial target practice for someone I suppose.

It’s crying out for someone to paint in a giant clitoris.

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.

I think the red concrete 'band' outside Admirals house etc is meant as a safe area for pedestrians when crossing. But that doesnt fit in with the red concrete between rails and either side of rails tbh. Its not very clear and equally not sure how it would stand up legally when a accident takes place. , and it will sadly

What is a safe area for pedestrians crossing other than a pedestrians' crossing?

Agreed but just passing on what I've been told . Its apparently between the two lanes of traffic to allow a pause when crossing . But why not just as you say have pedestrian crossings . Who knows , maybe I was told duff info . But if so what is it for ?? 

Oops just read your post correctly now. Yes apparently its a pedestrian crossing , sorry , but still not sure what the red concrete wide band is for

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, it’s only opening to exit the prom on Monday……we’ve still got to wait another month until it’s fully opened!!

It's pretty clear where vehicles need to drive.  Or at least it was when I drove along there.

Quarterbridge is absolutely fine.  The problem appesrs to be Manx drivers understanding how to use a roundabout.

It's interesting that this announcement (including the apology for the delay) is being done in the name of the contractor. Had it all come in time & on budget would the contractor have been given the credit?
