So given we are nearing the end of the project (allegedly for now), who is going to be maintaining these new wonderous surfaces? And who will be paying for it?

In Ramsey we have at least twice weekly mini-roadsweeper for an hour or two over the granite streets, courthouse grounds and pavements. Then every few months the pressure washers are out scrubbing it all inclsuing the side lanes to the quayside.

So will it be ratepayers of Douglas or Central Government? Or will it just be neglected and end up an eyesore with oil stains, gum and the like again.

The latter, it needs to blend in with its surroundings.

Personally I can't wait for the horse shit to get smeared across the new red/pink cracked concrete. That will be a delightful colour.

Nothing more than we all suspected or knew. It's just an eternal project to justify people's careers and employment. 10 year snagging.

How much will this cost and who's paying for it?

Members of this administration shouldn't be seeking re-election. They should be hanging their heads in "collective" shame and contrition and apologising to the electorate.

Thanks for sharing that. I have known for a few months that DOI were aware (internally at least) that the only realistic option  is for all the pink tram concrete to be lifted - but this is the first time I've seen one of them break ranks and admit it publicly.
