Bridge con­cerns

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FAMILY CELEBRATIONS -

TEM­PO­RARY re­stric­tions on the bridge over the canal in Bo­tolphs Bridge Road be­tween Dym­church and West Hythe could af­fect 999 ve­hi­cles.

Cllr Ian Mey­ers, a Dym­church fire­fighter, feared that fire en­gines would not be able to use the bridge.

But KCC spokesman Phil Scrivener said: “The re­stric­tion has been re­duced to three tons dur­ing emer­gency work but we have made an ex­emp­tion for small fire ap­pli­ances.”
