I wonder if any of the local bookies would take a bet on completion date, date of first remedial works and the overspend cost on an accumulator?

I predict an inquiry when it's all done that will find that DOI was equipped with insufficient experience, skills and its own or contracted resources and manpower to undertake the job.

Rumours already abound that at least one of the contractors wants "off" the job because of the way things are being handled.

This time next year wasnt it. Project was meant to take two years. 

I think they meant the cone and fence distribution project...

Only on the IoM would being already 20% late on delivery be seen as a success.

Get Kevin McCloud in to make a documentary. Amateur project manager, overstretches ideas, overspends on budget. Doesn't realise vision and cries great lot.

The July one is the newest one? Why would it take months to publish that?

No idea, possiibly  just the cogs of bureacracy straining under the weight of sheer BS. 

 

This one is eye-opening - according to the minutes Longworth was (is?) dreaming up (a no doubt expensive) scheme to extend the MER into central Ramsey... WHY?.

Club Tynwald need to kick that one right into touch before it goes any further.
