I've worked with a blind engineer. She would have done a far better job.

I don't doubt it for one moment.

The Promenade appears to be massively behind the (already revised) work schedule. 

The December 2019 phasing plans show the so-called rail corridor as 'complete by January 2020' as far as Castle Mona Avenue. 

 

Well they're still working on it and it looks far from complete!

Lots of grumbling on iomtoday about the lack of progress on Lord St too, to include similar complaints about lack of workforce present.

Plus the stretch from Ballacraine to WCAS now scheduled to reopen at end of February. That section has gone days and days (if not weeks) at a time with no signs of activity, since closure in October.

They don’t seem to have any workforce. Like every other department they seem to think that the management can administer itself out of its problems without the intervention of anyone at the actual coal face who are expensive resources which have been dispensed with on the grounds of financial efficiency. It’s a bit like employing 10 people to write a book on how to dig a hole, or drive a digger.

You can't have to much management. How else are you going to ensure the department head is doing his job properly?

There is ongoing work on the SMR as well, though I think Auldyn are involved in that too?

Ohhh and after looking further on Auldyns work schedule it would seem according to them they are laying ' Asphalt ' on 17th of this month on the rail corridor ! Now there's a turn up as previous it was tarmac . Mmmm ohh right let's revert back to what worked all those years ago !! There's a twist , couldn't make it up .

You're quite right. 

 

Also today's newsletter claims the seaside opposite Summerhill is now 'complete'... they've even painted parking lines.... only problem is the road is about 2 inches lower than the drain covers (and becomes a lagoon whenever it rains now) and also about 2 inches lower than the rail fail corridor.

It's  clearly not finished despite what there saying. The top coat has to go on I'm sure . Why they lying constantly . They really think we are all stupid !!! Morons aren't they . There's clearly a coat to go on up to the rail corridor also as currently there's a ramp of about 50cms wide which when they put the final coat on will address this . Parking lines are clearly to pasify the masses lol as it will be 'years ' till it's really finished .
