It would be nice if the 'MyProm team' could be arsed to update their social media or website. It's not been updated in 3 weeks. 

The last time Harmer and Co. got their arse kicked by Bettison, Callister and Robertshaw they were full of apologies and promises that the work sites wouldn't be more than 400m and that communication would be greatly improved... what a load of shite that turned out to be!! 

Well nothing since the 27th August and the Twitter is similarly inactive.  They do still appear to be keeping Facebook up to date though, except that none of the recent posts actually seem to be about the works on the Prom.  I believe there are people working full time on this, you know.

I've explained this before Derek. From a friend working for a firm who is responsible for lots of services  , not Auldyn etc , while they had a concept plan from day one ie what the finished job would

It's not Harmer's direct fault. Nor any of those we elect. APART from not having the departmental and relevant experience and balls to stand up to and question the reams of bullshitters and chanc

But the problem isn't the horse trams.  It's the corporate culture of the Manx civil service.  Rather than accept the reality of what their main job is, which is maintain existing structures in the mo

I did read somewhere that all of the streets between the prom and strand street close next week too... 

Here you go:

Quote

Courier 6 September 2019

Regent Street, Howard Street and Granville Street (Douglas)

Temporary  Closure to vehicular and pedestrian traffic as follows –

Regent Street between Loch Promenade and Villiers Lane;

Howard Street between Loch Promenade and Villiers Lane and Strand Lane; and Granville Street from Loch Promenade to Granville Lane,

from 6.00pm on 13 September 2019 until 6.00pm on 12 March 2020 or until the promenade reconstruction work is completed, whichever is the earlier.

This work will be phased and only one of the aforementioned roads will be closed at a time.

The one-way on the unnamed lane from Regent Street to Fort Street and Fort Street to Victoria Street will be suspended whilst Regent Street is closed and the one-way system on Castle Street will be suspended at such times as Granville Street is closed.

Access to properties will be maintained.  Access will also be allowed for emergency vehicles, public works vehicles, and others with the permission of the Department.

This work is being carried out by Auldyn Construction as part of the Douglas Refurbishment Scheme. Contact details for Douglas Refurbishment Scheme MyProm Project are 686363 or email myprom@gov.im.

DOI 384

So from today - but presumably only one of them.

Not reopening the can of worms that is the subject of how long the work is taking, but surely it's not too much to ask for them to keep the public informed?

What work? The last three times I've been to Douglas I've honestly not seen anyone working ! In fact, I've only seen about two fellows in dayglo.

They seem to have a wrecking crew who are able to pull up the road. But nobody that knows how to lay the new road. 

I'd assumed they couldn't get the reinstatement video to load on YouTube!

So is the stop sign at the bottom of broadway permenant, with no more traffic lights ?
