Hearing a lot of moaning, a Manx pastime, about the queues on the promenade.

I go there as little as possible due to the works, its common sense to avoid it while it is getting rebuilt.

From what I am hearing its the same people, on face book moaning about the same situation over and over again - Is that not a sign of madness??

No it's just common sense frustration at the incompetence, misinformation, excessive waste of money, endless delays, the madness of unmarked junctions with artwork on them and all out our expense. 

After all, has anyone been sacked during this fiasco? Not even guys trying to kill fucking seagulls with a digger, or whoever is responsible for laying and then relaying paviours, tarmac or concrete?

I'd rather the entire road was shut for four weeks solid and done than this utter fiasco of 80 weeks while they appear to do next to no work and make no discernible progress from day to day.

they still haven't cured the water splash at the Ballafletcher roundabout  or managed to put the drains in the correct places to allow the surface water to run away ,and the road surface is breaking up  as well , You would have thought while all the plant and equipment was there they would have done a proper job , instead of leaving it to the next exciting   road closure

Drainage gully's go at highest point in the road don't they?

In the DOI's play book yes it would seem so. How long till Richmond Hill has to be dug up again ?? 

Next year when they spend £500,000 planing the £50k dressing off and relaying it with the sort of stone chips the contractors wanted in the first place.

Some serious road dressing work appears to be scheduled for the North of the Island going by the size of the veritable mountain of chippings that has been stockpiled in the carpark/playground of the former Albert Rd school.

Saw that myself, there is some lovely big bald patches on the road if you head towards Sulby Ginger, I expect them to wait until the weather starts to turn before applying them and then we’ll be lucky if it lasts the winter.
