... and ban vans and SUVs from parking by crossings and get rid of the crossing on the north side of Broadway, far too close to the roundel while motorists attention is on traffic and get rid of that ridiculous 'siding' for the Trams and only run the Trams in the south lane track to allow more space in the north bound road and and and................

It was amazing how quickly the "My Prom" media publications suddenly stopped as the whole thing started to unravel and all involved started to distance themselves from the saga

I was expecting a name change to "Your Prom . Nothing to do with me mate"

No doubt people will want to distance themselves from the project - but at the same time wonder how to give themselves credit for a successful outcome.

When this kind of informational setup is designed, everyone is thrilled about it. As time goes by, non-one can be bothered to make the not-inconsiderable effort to keep all the details up-to-date. That is just tedious, irrelevant, stuff.

Similarly with all DoI magnificent granite and plate-glass schemes - the thrill is in the design. Keeping it clean and tidy is irrelevant.

The attached images I took while hanging around gov. buildings (the place where multi-million award-winning schemes are conceived) waiting for the Ranson hearings. Millions to spend on cyan and blue tarmac on the prom., but no money for Trigger and his brush.

Somehow either Manx Gas or the Creamery will manage to win it.

That is a disgrace. Where is that I can’t place it from the picture?
