Promenade/Peel Road Megathread

Recommended Posts

A bit of research and I'm told there's no further work on the northern end of the Promenade until they work out why their crappy concrete is cracking up.  So the long-suffering busineses have to endure an extended loss of parking.

It is well known that Ian Longworth wanted the new tram line to terminate at the Sefton, and apparently he threw his toys around quite a lot, but eventually lost the argument.

Longworth is a twat who should have been finally seen off by the farce he’s created on that stretch of the prom. All so he can play at being the fat controller of loss making horse trams even if it bankrupts tax paying private businesses by cutting them off from passing trade for years and years.

There’s no spaces on the road now.

The Promenade is more than just Loch prom. Don't you notice that when you're holding all the traffic up?

I know. They have offset that with the parking they have put on the promenade walkway.

You don't like being shown to be wrong, do you? #LycraCunt

Blimey. There are a fair few cracks in the new red bit. Time for our Rob to table a question in the house I reckon.

Those cracks have been carefully installed in accordance with the cracks in the plans...

Add the Peel road cock up, the continued Gansey road debacle, Richmond Hill, third world road from 4rds through PSM. Whoever is in charge of roads should be sacked on the spot.

Judging by the poor standards/planning, it'll be difficult sacking the primary school child that is overseeing this...

I've walked the length of the Prom this morning, and the only work being done anywhere, is by Stephen Christian's men and machines, who are rapidly breaking up more and more of the old surface, at both ends. Other than them, there are a handful, I mean four or five blokes, generally just wandering about, but doing nothing constructive, and certainly making no progress to getting any of the closed sections reinstated.

There is something badly wrong with this project. It must be slipping further and further behind schedule, each week. Businesses are being disrupted for months longer than envisaged, and we are being told nothing. It is starting to look like the Department of Incompetence's biggest ever cock-up, and that is saying something.

Cones are out and cars getting ticketed between the Castle Mona and Spectrum now so I suspect the next stage of digging up is imminent too.

As I'm not on the Island at the moment, can someone confirm that it's both concrete and tarmacadam that's cracked, or just one of them. If so, which one?
