It's called "deterrent paving" and is used for areas where you don't want any pedestrians, cyclists, or users at all..

Perhaps they are going to put a ring of it around Douglas to act like a modern moat🤔

I think the tips of the concrete spikes will be broken off quite quickly by BMX tyres 😀

Wasnt there somewhere in Douglas with pebbles concreted into the pavement designed to break kids ankles at some point many years ago ?

Is this "crayonista speak"....?

It looks like they've got a new pack from Dealz.  All these unconventional markings are actually dangerous because they distract drivers and give false signals to pedestrians.  Hopefully someone won't have to die this time before this is realised.

But the people drawing them think they look pretty.  Which is the important thing.

What is a desire line? Apart from the funny answers, does it just mean where someone walks out of choice? If so, then why not just let them walk there without pointing it out.

They wouldn't have needed that jaggy bit then before the roundabout,  I can see that causing more grief to drivers.

I can't find it in amongst the beautiful pictures and the wild flowers.  Can you précis it for us?

I wonder how these wild flowers and their seeds will hold up to being lashed by salt water during the winter storms, will they come back in the following Spring and Summer? Or is it the intention to replant every year?

They have no idea.... absolutely no idea, NB.
