Bridge at sta­tion gets a facelift

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

WORK on a facelift for the pedes­trian bridge along­side Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional Sta­tion is go­ing well. The bridge over the dual car­riage­way has been cov­ered in scaf­fold­ing for sev­eral weeks. Op­er­a­tors Eurostar say contractors are paint­ing the walk­way which runs from the sta­tion to the car park on the other side of Rom­ney Marsh Road. Eurostar spokesman Richard Hol­li­gan said: “Es­sen­tially the bridge is be­ing painted – and be­cause of the ac­cess that needed scaf­fold­ing. “It’s an 18-week process but it should still be com­pletely ac­ces­si­ble to the pub­lic. “Hope­fully, it’s go­ing to look a lot smarter once it is fin­ished.” On the do­mes­tic side of the sta­tion plans for an at­trac­tive pub­lic square with seat­ing, land­scap­ing and im­proved path­ways in the fore­court have been sub­mit­ted. If granted, the first phase of the work is ex­pected to start in June. And it could be fin­ished by spring next year.
