Serious question, having watched some doi road works resurfacing (a patchwork quilt of a job done to) why do they start with a big gang then do a few days, then disappear then come back to go again so on and so on, then friday always seems an early bath and of bit of noise Saturday morning presumably for double bubble, Spanish practices or bad management organisation what am trying to say why don’t they just start and finish the bloody job in one hit.

Always early finish for them on a Friday. Regardless . And cant miss the Saturday overtime lift .

It is worth making the effort to read the text in the above photos - a sense of humour is required. Enbarr's horse might look like a horse from those flying at 50 feet over the prom. but from ground level the effect will be somewhat diminished.

I think Fand, the fairy queen, should wave her magic wand over all DoI managers and turn them into frogs.

I mistakenly thought the walkway was the corpy's

Would anyone be bothered if it was just resurfaced in tarmac? As long as it was all smooth and a half decent job.

As opposed to what we all know it will turn out to be....

Assholes would be more appropriate. 

In my own humble opinion.  

Sorry no need for a magic wand they already are.

Yes ,surface is starting to break up as they decided to use it as a highway. The structure is concrete with an 1" of coloured bitchimum with stones rolled in whilst hot. Use as a highway has caused cracking which will allow water to get underneath and lift during winter storms.

Who on earth comes up with these "concept drawings" - the promenade walkway is not a bloomin' art installation - all that is needed is a durable, practical surface that will not be damaged by things like the funfair - it should be kept for pedestrians only. If they raise the existing sea wall by 1.2m pedestrians will hardly see anything of the beach - it will be like walking through a tunnel. 

It is time Government put an end to these crackpot ideas and started delivering what the people of this Island actually need. It is Fantasy Island at the moment!!
