When did expence for a vanity project ever require justification on either side of the Irish border tis the land of the stuffed brown envelope. I never was quite sure why the shinners were against it but I was all for it because I am the person that would drive double the distance to avoid traffic. Unfoutunately my work takes me up that way frequently and the traffic is a real pain in the arse after Newtownstewart so I hope it will happen.The Road to Nowhere at the minute. Dead stop at Ballygawley. If I remember right the justification was a ‘whole island’ road network. Dualling the road from Ballygawley to Londonderry would enable fast traffic flow from Dublin with dual carriageway on the Irish side. Is there that much traffic going that route to justify the expense? Doubt it.
Scariest place in NI? Delivering ‘specialist products’ to quarries in the deeply green areas could be an arse tightener in the 90s and 00s. Especially when, nearly at the quarry, a few bods stepped out of a hedge dressed in black and carrying rifles just ahead of me. Turned out they were peelers with no bloody hats on. Too late, already shit meself.
