Bridge backed

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Business Update -

A new foot­bridge for Char­ing’s rail­way sta­tion has been given the go ahead by Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil (ABC). Net­work Rail ap­plied for plan­ning per­mis­sion to re­place the ex­ist­ing Ex­mouth de­sign bridge, with a more mod­ern con­struc­tion. ABC has now given ap­proval to the pro­ject, but has rec­om­mended that lifts would be a wel­come ad­di­tion to the plans. The de­sign of the bridge would al­low for the in­stal­la­tion of lifts at a later date, and will be built taller than the pre­vi­ous con­struc­tion, to al­low elec­tri­fied wires to run un­derneath if nec­es­sary. Con­struc­tion is ex­pected to take place over a week­end in late Septem­ber.
