Just walked along promenade, can’t see it being finished by September, more like year end of weather ok.

Anyone know when the tram tracks are going down as not even started laying them

I dont think the tracks are going much further than where they are now till funding gets approved and obviously thats not going to happen till new House is voted in . Agree with you cant see it till the end of year at earliest as the latest timetable was end of September plus 4 weeks snagging after. Thats not happening as they still dont know what to do with the red concrete cracking and that will take that 4 weeks alone I think.

November now for the 'finish date' I'm hearing. Plus a month (or 12) of snagging work. 

It just shows you how much disdain everyone involved with this project holds the people of the Isle of Man. There really havent given a toss since day one and all the revised finish dates have been a total joke. They really think the public are stupid and believe the spin. Tim Baker , I'm really looking forward to your next press conference to explain this one.

I do hope someone here or maybe Paul Moulton will take a drive down the prom and make a video for those of us in exile.

Not just the promenade works though.

Richmond Hill way over finish time ( if it has actually ever been finished)

Ballasalla Roundabout now seems to not being finished til September and not July as originally stated

Steps by Douglas swing bridge, should have been open today I think, still closed.

The promenade will not be finished 12 months from now as they will not have finished the roundels or tram by then.

My guess is the roundels will be left as they are now providing they dont break up which wouldnt surprise me if they did tbh. The Tram lines I think will be finished but when ?. Have to ideally get it done before May but they have the TT course to repair and thats due to start in March. Course is really bad in lots of places .

With everything behind schedule I was surprised that they started the Braddan school road which is another 6 weeks job taking up a fair amount of resources. A nice new crossing & bus stop will be nice but not really essential in my view.
