road layout#]

ABANDONING the contentious single lane of traffic along the seafront has been strongly backed by islanders and local businesses, who have said ‘it never should have been changed in the first place’.

Come election day........

The terminus pedestrian crossing seems to be lightly used. Would removing that crossing and lights and installing one at the Albion work? Just a thought!

No water in St Sampson`s Harbour at low tide.

Graham,

Couldn't agree more - the big picture has to be painted first. Traffic is a major issue and it must be adequately considered during the evolution of the island plan which is in development.

I have had enough of the Environment Department. Things will only get worse when departments are reduced to only six and they then get even more powers with which to abuse us!

Can anyone direct me to the new charges for CO2 and the date they will come in?

Something smells here!

I believe the spoil was dumped to replace the bits of seabed blown away by Condor's jet drives - rumour has it that parts of the harbour walls / piles were starting to get seriously undermined.

The people in Fort George are tighter than a duck's arse, they won't pay for anything, hence the state of the roads in parts of the estate.
