Promenade/Peel Road Megathread

It really is nonsensical. I wasn’t joking when I said someone should be sacked. Someone should be sacked. And all for a handful of old gimmers as well. They should just have taken the trams off at least for the duration of the works. 

Absolutely, someone should be sacked! Don't forget, in addition to the day to day operational chaos and risk, when pushed to explain why the horse trams are running, a whole succession of DoI Directors/Managers/Minister (Black, Robinson, Longworth and Harmer) all lied about having a contractual obligation to do so.

Why don't they concentrate on one job at a time ie the Prom? How much labour and resources are they going to have to divert to this new project?

Totally agree. One of the comments in that link above suggests he’s doing it before the election to get the cyclists votes and it’s probably not far wrong as otherwise why the fuck would you this right now with all the other mess going on round the corner? It’s like they really do just want to close the whole of town down!

I drive/cycle along the prom every day and it just looks like they haven't a clue what they are doing. It's like Rag, Tag and Bobtail road construction

I've been down to Douglas twice in the last two weeks, (I don't get out much lol), and both times I really didn't see any workers on the fenced off stretch at the sea terminal end of the works for the couple of hours I was there, ( between about 10am and 12). just saying.

Maybe they've already diverted them?

Slightly off topic but do you reckon they will EVER fix Richmond hill then. Another winter on the way, so the road won’t be warm enough!!

So if it is a private company why all the slagging off Harmer and the DOI if they got the contract they must be calling the shots and have obviously got expert advise.    I am in no way saying the job is a good un, but the wrong people seem to be getting the flack.
