Does anyone know the reason for all of the square holes they're digging randomly along Central prom and Harris prom? 

Thought they were getting ready to put the final surface down but not there's new hole digging. 

 

Could just be they ran out of round holes and have square holes left to use up. 

Yes , the random hole diggers had finished their other random hole digging so Tim Baker,  with authorization from Nick Black , instructed the minions to walk along the Prom and wherever it seemed the area was finished, to dig it up and make sure the cones and harris fencing hire was justified. On doing so they have been instructed to leave the random hole , fencing and cones and move on to the next one so the level of disruption is maintained.

Probably locations for all of the new signage translating the crayonista road markings into recognisable standard Highway Code signs and road markings. Have you ever noticed not one of the designers has come forward before or after the event to say "Hey, look at this design, isn't it cool and here is why...." Much in the same way as whoever was responsible for the design of the non-standard crossing at St Johns never came forward to defend it.

They are standard for a reason. I can imagine theee will be leaflets on the ferry for all visitng drivers to explain how to navigate Trumpton/Legotown highway.

From what I've seen most have various red paint markings with the letters M. H. included. So expect to find man holes under the layer of tarmac . I would imagine they put tarmac over them all and now they have to identify them all and reinstate before the top layers of tarmac are put down. The whole project is a joke with everything being done at least twice.              No one comes out of this project with any plus points. Another expensive DOI Disaster.

Agreed, and in a few years time with the Prom done and the former Villiers site sorted, Middlemarch site, former Bus station site, Summerland site and all the Strand Street etc. regeneration all completed Douglas should look amazing.

I just looked back on this thread when it started 8 years ago.and the above is a quote  from an optomistic member.  Is it surprising that so many are now feeling disillusioned by the (non) events of the last few years .      I think many will feel let down with what has happened compared with what could have been done .  8 years on and Douglas looks aweful. Such a shame.
